Wash with cool water and gentle soap, store in a cool and dry location, and reuse.

Based on our research, we believe that using bee products from small, local and ethical bee keepers actually helps the bee population. And by being conscientious consumers we encourage and support more ethical beekeeping operations and practices, which in turn benefits the bee populations.
Beeswax would be wasted if we didn’t gather it for candles, moisturisers, lip balms and food wraps! The wax serves to cap the little hexagons of honey stored in honeycombs; left undisturbed, bees tunnel through it in winter and discard the wax as hive trash. Beekeepers have to slice off the wax to get to the liquid gold during honey harvests anyway, so why not use it?
If you have additional, well-informed information you would like to share on this question, we’d love to hear it! We feel strongly that using Cling Cloth is a win-win-win decision. Good for you, good for the environment, and good for the bees!
In the mean time, we are seriously researching developing a vegan Cling Cloth using other natural wax sources. If you feel that would be a preferable option for you, please let us know!
We’ve done the math. On average depending on size, a plastic bag is about 5p each (really more… but we’re being generous). If you use just 3 a week to store your cheese, cut fruit, or sandwiches, that adds up to over £18/year. A Cling Cloth will last you that long easily with care, and will cost 1/3 as much per unit.
Of course it is a bit more difficult to determine a like for like comparison to cling film. However, we all know how much waste is associated with using cling film as it is difficult to use, you need much bigger areas to cover your item, and it often doesn’t work, leaving you to use multiple pieces just to get your bowl or item covered properly.
And then there is all the wasted food that goes bad much quicker when kept in plastic!
We think the choice is clear – and think you will too.
What does it mean you ask? Well, simply put, with every piece of plastic you decide NOT to buy/use, you are helping the nth turtle. Or any sea creature for that matter. Or any creature on this stunning planet of ours, for that matter. That is our mission.
