For thousands of years, people have been using beeswax to help preserve food and other precious materials, but it hasn’t been understood until recently that this organic substance has amazing anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. These powerful characteristics are why Sherrie Adams first began to utilize it when she wanted to create a healthy and environmentally friendly alternative plastic wraps. Sherrie eventually perfected a reusable wrap by combining beeswax, organic cotton, jojoba oil and tree resin. The Honeybee Wrap is ideal for preserving foods, it’s a flexible moulded product that moulds to the shape of your bowl or food with the warmth of your hands.
Unbeknownst to many consumers, the clear plastic wrap that is commonly used by restaurants, caterers and home cooks is not only damaging to the environment, but also potentially dangerous to users. Plastic wrap is created from petroleum products and phthalates which have been shown to damage the development of children and can be carcinogenic. Petroleum extraction is one of the most toxic and damaging industrial processes; plastic wrap is non-biodegradable and can remain in landfills for centuries before decomposing.
The Honeybee Wrap was created by Sherrie Adams, a mother of five, to protect her family from these dangers. Using the Honeybee Wrap, parents can rest assured that only organic and environmentally conscious sourced materials were used. The Honeybee Wrap consists of a GOTS certified organic cotton which is infused with a mixture of beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin. Jojoba oil is a natural anti-fungal compound that inhibits appearance of mildew. Tree resin offers a natural hardening compound that stiffens the wrap when placed around a container. The wondrous Honeybee Wrap can be easily washed and reused for up to a year.
After receiving an enormous response from her community, Sherrie Adams is prepared to put her Honeybee Wrap into mass production. To complete her initial batch, Sherrie will need $40,000 AU for sourcing and printing organic cotton, upgrading waxing equipment, packaging, and acquiring additional commercial space for production. To raise these funds, Sherrie has sponsored a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Backers of this project can receive valuable perks like Honeybee Wraps, Pip Permaculture Magazine, Hemp Soap Saver, Tea Towel, Organic Garden Mag, Jute Bag, Joco Coffee Cup, Eco Gift Bag, Eco Max Brushes, or Milkwood Permaculture Courses.
