Because We Know Something's Up With Plastic
Especially the chemicals it leaches into our bodies.
“There is abundant research that links BPA and phthalate exposure to such human health concerns as deformities of the male and female genitals; premature puberty in females; decreased sperm quality; and increases in breast and prostate cancers, infertility, miscarriages, obesity, type 2 diabetes, allergies and neurological problems, like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.” (B Fellman, Yale's Journal of Forestry & Environmental Studies)
And BPA is just the tip of the iceberg:
"Most plastic products, from sippy cups to food wraps, can release chemicals that act like the sex hormone estrogen, according to a study in Environmental Health Perspectives. The study found these chemicals even in products that didn't contain BPA, a compound in certain plastics that's been widely criticized because it mimics estrogen." (NPR)
But despite the growing evidence, few regulations have been imposed:
"Since the 1990s, a vast body of research has linked BPA and other chemicals found in plastics to serious health problems, ranging from cancer to infertility. But the industry—often using tactics pioneered by Big Tobacco as it sought to bury evidence about the health risks of smoking—has managed to shield these substances from federal regulation." (Mother Jones)
But for centuries, ancient Egyptians used beeswax and coniferous tree resins for a preservation process you're probably familiar with... mummification.
“Coniferous resins, the scientists [Stephen Buckley and Richard Evershed, of the University of Bristol] explain, can slow microbial degradation, whereas beeswax has antibacterial properties and serves as a sealant.” (Scientific American)
So we applied those same principles to preserving - food.
Our wraps form a protective, breathable and antimicrobial seal over produce and cheese, bowls, sandwiches and just about any perishable - all without the use of plastic.
They are reusable. They are compostable. They are plastic free.
|Beeswax provides an antibacterial seal over perishables. We also added 1/10th of non-gmo soy wax to our recipe to make the wraps stickier, which helps it to adhere to bowls.|
|Coniferous tree resin helps to prevent the beeswax from cracking when cooled, while also slowing microbial degredation.|
|Organic Jojoba oil is antibacterial and helps to soften the wax.|
|Organic cinnamon and clove essential oils are both antibacterial and off-set the sweet aroma of the beeswax.|
|All our ingredients are infused in an organic cotton muslin fabric that is dyed with non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes.|
