I was horrified to learn that we all eat about a credit card’s worth of microplastics every week. We have been working hard to reduce the amount of waste we produce at home, which gets into landfill or is dumped in the oceans, and then gets into the water we drink, where most of the plastic that ends up in our bodies comes from. Plastic wrap from food isn’t recyclable, and is used all the time. So I love this new product, the beeswax wrap from Public Goods! In this photo you can see the new beeswax wrap from Public Goods that arrived this week in my delivery.
The plastic-replacing beeswax cloth can be wiped down with cold water and reused. We keep it in the fridge so the wax doesn’t melt off, and warm it with our hands to mold it around the dishes. It cleans off easily and eliminates the need for plastic wrap. It lasts for about a year, and all of it is biodegradable.
