What’s up everyone and welcome to another Green Tip Tuesday! Just want to say thank you to everyone who came out to the Stowe Brewers Festival this past weekend, we met a lot of great people, listened to some killer tunes, and enjoyed some of the finest brews around. Events like this get us really stoked for the season to start! Speaking of which, it’s August, almost there gang!

Alrighty, this week we’re looking at super cool product called Bee’s Wrap that’s going to make everyone’s lives a thousand times easier and probably save you 5 to 10 minutes while attempting to store your food. Before I get into it, I just want you to take a second and dig into your brain for memories of tearing saran wrap and having it crinkle and fold up on you, rendering it useless, and having to try and try again. Sorry for that, so angering though. One of my biggest pet peeves of using saran wrap, besides the aforementioned, is that I have to use plastic and it’s only getting used for a very short amount of time. I’m also not a huge fan of having to cover my food with plastic. Yeah I’m sure it’s fine and whatever, but c’mon, let’s cut some waste and chemical use out of our lives if we can.

Well my friends, rejoice, for Bee’s Wrap is going to save the day. Bee’s Wrap, unlike saran wrap, is 100% recyclable. I’ll do you one better, it’s also compostable. Wait, I’ll do you one more better, it’s also REUSABLE. Yup, that’s right, no more dealing with crumpled messes of saran wrap and getting really flustered for no reason (this one is hitting close to home). No more feeling bad when you eventually do have to dispose of it either. I know it doesn’t seem like it can really get any better, but there’s more. As you can probably assume from above, Bee’s Wrap is made out of all natural materials. Composed of only organic cotton, beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin, it’s really amazing what these things can do when combined.

The wax wrap looks like it’s much easier to use and more malleable than its not so environmentally friendly counterpart, and honestly, a lot more fun. Check them out here for yourself. If you’re not already convinced, I have two more attributes of Bee’s Wrap that will be nails in the coffin for you. It’s going to keep your food waaaaay more fresh than saran wrap, like another level of freshness. AND, Bee’s Wrap is a Vermont company, so you know it’s quality stuff! Go Vermont, WOOO!

That’s it for now everyone, thanks for reading in, and stay tuned for next week!
