Z Wraps Reusable Beeswax Food Wrap Giveaway!
Comment #13, Jennifer was the winner!
We’re always looking to make small changes to become more environmentally friendly around here. Things like metal straws, reusable snack bags, and adding a curbside compost service are just some of the small changes we’ve made.
This year, I’m ditching soaps and shampoos in all those plastic bottles, and switching to bar soaps and shampoos instead. I’m going to dip my toe in soapmaking this summer and trying to scavenge as many supplies as possible from my local Buy Nothing group (you should check to see if there’s 1 in your area, as we use it to pass along things we no longer need, too). I’m planning to knit myself some reusable swiffer covers this month (you can find both knit and crochet versions on Ravelry). We’re also trying to buy more bulk items, so we can refill jars instead of throwing out more plastic bags. Basically, my husband and I want to create less trash, and rely less on plastic this year.
Last year we started using some beeswax food wrap instead of plastic wrap, and though I had fun making some from my fabric scraps with just beeswax, they didn’t cling to bowls the way I wanted them to, so we used them mainly for sandwiches. Leave it to my crafty local mama-friend Michelle, who perfected the art of the beeswax wrap, by adding tree resin and Jojoba oil. I was able to keep my Quiche covered in the fridge without the wrap coming loose! Perfection!
She’s turned her wraps into a lovely new online shop, and as fellow mother who runs a crafty business, I am so excited for her! Michelle was sweet enough to share a few (in my favorite print, Farmer’s Market) with me. Instead of keeping them all to myself, I’m giving a medium Z Wrap (perfect for taking your sandwich to work or school) away to one lucky commenter (I’ll ship anywhere in the world). Share a small change you’ve made, or would like to make, in the comments. I’ll choose a winner using a random number generator on Sunday, January 21st! Good luck!
