How to use Beeswax Wraps this Christmas
As part of the festive celebrations, Christmas time is notorious for excessive food consumption and sadly, waste.
Our global food waste stands at a whopping 1.3 billion tonnes a year and Christmas is certainly a big contributor to this. Plastic production has also more than doubled in the last 50 years, so it's time we think about products that are positive for our environment.
Did you know that beeswax wraps can help preserve your food naturally? No wasteful and polluting plastic wrap is needed, simply roll in your hand to warm up and they will seal around your bowl or food.
Here are our top tips for how Moonmoon beeswax wraps can help you over this festive period. 🐝🎅
For Food Preparation
Many of us like to prepare our food for the big day in advance. Beeswax wraps are a great product for wrapping cut up fruit and vegetables, or even to cover over that roasting tin of potatoes ready for your Christmas dinner. The combination of beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil makes a super effective, safe and naturally antibacterial wrap. 🍲🥔🍊🥕
Keep Festive Cheese & Bread Fresh
Cheese is one our family favourites at Christmas. Keep your half eaten cheese and bread/baguettes fresher for longer in our beeswax wraps. They easily mould around odd shapes and can help extend the shelf life of your food. They are a better alternative to cling film, that can suffocate cheese and bread making it spoil faster. Christmas doesn’t have to be wasteful if you plan your shopping well and preserve what you have bought. 🧀🍞🥖
Covering Party Food
Christmas time means party time! So what better way to make your party food look lovely on the table wrapped and covered in beeswax wraps. They are super handy for those Christmassy gatherings and get togethers. Why not also try making them into party cone favours to give out or cones to use rather than plastic plates. A win for us and the planet!🍕🍿🧁🍾
Cover Your Leftovers
Beeswax wraps are also great for covering your leftovers, keeping them fresh for a future meal. They are far more attractive in your fridge than cling film too! Our beeswax covers are flexible and adhesive. Simply use the warmth of your hands to activate their sealing power. When needed, hand wash in cool water with mild dish soap and hang to dry. 🍽
