When used to store or heat food, plastic leaches toxins into the food which is later consumed by us. There are many studies that have proven that BPA (a common chemical in many plastics) causes a variety of health issues for those who consume food products that have come in contact with it. (1) They’re terrible to our health and terrible to the environment as well.
Therefore, beeswax wraps are a safe and effective alternative to plastic wraps and plastic containers (though, they do come with limitations. For instance, the inability to contain liquids). They are beautiful, functional, reusable, economical and eco-friendly. They are multipurpose and best of all, they’re incredibly easy to make too!
