The natural alternative to plastic wrap for food storage
— because good food deserves good care.
Bee’s Wrap started with a question facing many families and home cooks: How could we eliminate plastics in our kitchen in favor of a healthier, more sustainable way to store our food?
Founder Sarah Kaeck discovered the answer in her own Vermont kitchen, where Kaeck rediscovered a lost tradition: After coating cotton with beeswax, she created a washable, reusable, compostable alternative to plastic wrap. Today Bee’s Wrap is handcrafted from organic cotton, sustainably harvested beeswax, organic ojoba oil, and tree resin. The resulting wraps provide a versatile and durable solution to sustainable food storage
Bee’s Wrap is available in more than 900 stores across the United States, and is also distributed internationally in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Australia.
Bee’s Wrap is handcrafted in Bristol, Vermont, and ships worldwide.
Bee’s Wrap® Basics
Global Organic Textile Standard-certified organic cotton, beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin.
Incredibly versatile, Bee’s Wrap can be used to cover a bowl, wrap up cheese, fruit, vegetables and bread, or to pack a snack for your next adventure. Use the warmth of your hands to form our wraps around a piece of food or over a bowl or casserole dishes. As the wrap cools, it will hold its shape.
The natural antibacterial properties of beeswax and jojoba oil help keep food fresh, and allow Bee’s Wrap to be used again and again.
Bee’s Wrap is reusable; simply wash with cool water and soap, hang to dry, and repeat. Used several times each week, Bee’s Wrap will last for roughly one year. Bee’s Wrap is not recommended for raw meat. Keep Bee’s Wrap away from heat sources such as hot water, ovens, dishwashers and microwaves.

About the Founder
Good food has always been central to Bee’s Wrap founder Sarah Kaeck’s life in Vermont. A mother of three, she’s been by turns an avid gardener, a milker of goats, and a keeper of chickens. Believing good food deserves good care, Kaeck set out to find a healthier and more sustainable alternative to plastics in her family’s kitchen.
An avid seamstress, she began experimenting with beeswax-imbued fabrics — and discovered Bee’s Wrap. For months, the comforting smell of melting beeswax filled her home. Three short years later, what started as an idea in Kaeck’s home kitchen has evolved into a thriving business located in its own workshop in Bristol, Vermont.
