Inspired by a school project three mums have solved the problem of using disposable food wrap wrap by creating a gorgeous, natural and reusable alternative to plastic.
Made with organic cotton and natural preservatives Honeywraps shape around sandwiches, fruit, veg or over dishes to keep food fresh for longer. Each Honeywrap saves the equivalent of 75 m of plastic when used in school lunches over a school year. To date Honeywrap has saved over 2 million metres of plastic going to landfill or our oceans.
Say goodbye to plastic and get yourself a beautiful NZ made alternative.
