4 Mother's Day Gift Options for Sustainable Living and Green Gift-Giving

4 Mother's Day Gift Options for Sustainable Living and Green Gift-Giving

Mother's Day is a special day dedicated to celebrating and honoring the woman who gave us life, love, and guidance. Finding the perfect gift for Mom can be a daunting-- but one unique and eco-friendly option is gifting beeswax food wraps. Practicality with a touch of warmth and natural beauty to grace any kitchen.

Wild Wax Wraps are a durable, washable, reusable alternative to traditional plastic wrap. Made with cotton cloth coated with beeswax, these wraps can be used to cover bowls, keep produce and cheese fresh, or wrap sandwiches, snacks, and cookies for travel or a sack lunch. The warmth of your hands softens and activates the beeswax coating, molding to any shape and creating a seal around the food.

The beeswax comes from the wild rock bee, Apis dorsata. The dorsata is the second largest of the honey bees! Your purchase helps protect their wild habitat.

Added bonus-- beeswax has an antibacterial and antifungal effect, making it perfect for natural and sustainable food storage.

 To clean just wash with cold water and a mild dish soap, rinse and let dry. So easy to use!

Unlike plastic wrap, beeswax wraps are biodegradable and compostable, making them a much more eco-friendly choice. With proper care they can be reused for up to a year, after which they can be rewaxed and refreshed, composted, or used as a natural fire starter.

If every American household swapped plastic wrap with beeswax wraps, we’d spare millions of square feet of plastic wrap from the planet each year. A single 3 pack of Wild Wax Wraps can be used hundreds of times. Just think of the rolls of plastic wrap we'll spare!

The versatility of beeswax wraps means that they can be used by anyone-- the avid foodie, occasional chef, weekend baker, and the teen reheat-n-eater. 

Gifting Wild Wax food wraps for Mother's Day is a practical and thoughtful choice. It shows your love and appreciation for your Mom and our Mother Earth-- supporting biodiversity and these important pollinators, while reducing plastic waste.
