Abeego wraps are my number one find when it comes to things that made this year awesome for my goals of sustainability and minimizing waste. I never was one to reuse wax paper, but I did cringe when aluminum foil was pitched. I was constantly looking for ways to package my leftovers and transport meals. Then I found out about Abeego flats and I just couldn't help myself. I had to try these crazy little beeswax wrap things!
After expanding a little into the usual forms of green packaging (reusable snack bags, steel tupperware, etc.), I still found myself missing the ability to just wrap up my food and go. Abeego wraps create a breathable environment to prevent your food from spoiling. They are inspired by nature and created with pure beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin infused into a fabric made of hemp and certified organic cotton.
Through my experiences wrapping with them I'm constantly impressed in the many ways it keeps my food looking and tasting great! I've since expanded my love for Abeego since my first attempt at using the beeswax-based wraps. You can use them for just about any regular ol' job in place of cling wrap or aluminum foil. Abeego simply uses body heat to stick and conform to the item fo your choosing. Just slip it over a bowl or around a casserole dish and press to seal. Voila! A perfectly awesome, reusable wrap that you can enjoy again and again.
Abeego Wraps Uses• Store cheese in a flat
• Cover the cut side of your fresh fruits and vegetables
• Cover rising dough
• Cover bowls of leftovers and sauces
• Wrap up frozen food and store for up to a month
• Use a flat as a handy jar opener
Getting my hands on the XL flat wrap was awesome because I can finally wrap my breads up in something that won't end up in a landfill. And it is generously shaped for all my casserole needs. I'm pretty sure the secret is in the breathable design. Food tastes fresh after being unwrapped from Abeego flats. You know how when you dig into leftovers wrapped with cling wrap and the edges are often hard and stale? Nope. You won't find that after using the Abeego XL wrap.
Because they are breathable, you can use them to let bread rise. I recently discovered you can even use Abeego flats to cover fermenting foods and so I'm dying to try the littlest wrap on my next kombucha batch.
Abeego all the leftovers! Abeego all the half pieces of fruit!
Actually, Abeego not only minimizes waste but it minimize my dish load, too. All it takes is a mild alcohol-free soap and cold water to clean Abeego. Goodbye, tupperware.
