Beeswax Wrap

About our DIYs:
All DIYs that are created in SLOW DOWN YOUR DESIGN are proof that sometimes even 20 minutes are enough to create something beautiful and useful. They are here to give you ideas for creative, crafty projects that are good for you and the environment. On one hand, they are created with the idea of showing you how to step out of the fast-paced lifestyle for a few minutes, slow down your thoughts, and relax. On the other hand, they are focused on creating new things from the stuff that we all have in our home (old clothing pieces, broken jewelry, etc.) and that you can give a new life to, instead of discarding them. Because of this, they help reduce the amount of trash we produce and reduce our ecological footprint.
Our formula is easy! Creativity makes us happy, and our Planet A also 😉

Beeswax Wrap

The time needed: 30min

Now, there is a big chance that you have already heard of Beeswax Wrap, as the whole internet is buzzing about it. Just in case you didn’t hear about it: Beeswax Wraps have gained so much popularity because they are a plastic-free alternative to conventional food packaging. Due to the antibacterial properties of beeswax, they are also very safe to use, even better than plastic (for more than one reason). Help us make this trend even greener by following this DIY instruction and creating your wraps from upcycled old linen and cotton fabrics you have lying around your home.
You will need beeswax for this project. As you will be wrapping your food in it, it definitely needs to be pure beeswax and not toxic paraffin. We have used leftovers from a beeswax candle, bought on farmers market but in case you need to buy some: keep in mind that when you want to create something with the consciousness of ecological footprint it creates you have to make sure that you are sourcing your materials as local as possible and that they are certified as ecological producers.
