Honeywrap – natural, re-usable food wrap

Honeywrap is a natural NZ product that has been created to address the growing problem of waste from single use plastic. The aim is to increase awareness of the environmental impact of using disposable plastic to wrap food and provide alternatives.

Honeywrap is a reusable food wrap that keeps food fresh and is waste free. It combines New Zealand beeswax, New Zealand tree resin, jojoba oil and organic cotton to create an environmentally-friendly, sustainable and stylish food wrap. Currently sales equate to 22,500 metres of plastic wrap a week not being sent to landfill.

In addition, each pack contains bee-friendly wild flower seeds for customers to plant, thus providing a much needed food source for bees and raising awareness of the rapid decline of the bee population. Currently the team is looking to expand and grow its educational component into schools with fundraisers and workshops.

Honeywrap is a finalist in the 2015 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards in the EcoPro Cleaning Co Community Innovation Award.
