Bees wax wraps are an eco-alternative to plastic food wrap and can be used in so many different ways. Choose from one of our 3 fabrics or get creative and design your own.

WHY ARE BEES AND OTHER POLLINATORS'S IMPORTANT?

For a world without hunger:

  •  Every third spoonful of food depends on pollination
  •  Bee products are a rich source of indispensable nutrients.

For sustainable farming and jobs:

  • Effective pollination increases the amount of agricultural produce, as well as the diversity of our fields and our plates
  • It provides jobs for millions of people worldwide and is an important source of income for  farmers.

For preserving the environment:

  •  Pollinators ensure biodiversity and have positive effects on the entire ecosystem
  •  they also signal the health of local ecosystems

 

FIVE THINGS I CAN DO TO HELP SUPPORT BEES AND OTHER POLLINATORS

  1. Planting or sowing decorative honey plants on balconies, decks and gardens.
  2. Making or buying bee nests for your home – on the deck or in the garden.
  3. Avoiding mowing during plants’ most active cycles and mowing in evening hours.
  4. Spraying, if really necessary, only with pesticides that are harmless to bees and only in calm, windless weather early in the morning or late at night, when bees are no longer around.
  5. Raising awareness about the importance of bees and purchasing honey and other bee products.
