Around one third of the food produced globally goes to waste - 'Stop Food Waste Day' on April 27th is an international day of action designed to educate and instigate change in the fight against wasted food. One way to reduce this wastage is to educate consumers to understand how to effectively extend the shelf life of their food and of course, how to safely preserve their leftovers!
People need to save food from the bin by changing the way we buy, store and use it.
It's vital that everybody take responsibility for the need to address this problem and here's an easy way to make a difference. Take the first step today and join WaxWrap on its mission to create a positive impact on people, the planet, and the food system.
Perfect for keeping food super fresh so it lasts longer, these versatile wraps offer a reusable and eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic and cling film. Super convenient and made from 100% natural ingredients, they are available in pre-cut wrap, bag or a unique on-a-roll format.
WaxWrap bags are ideal for packed lunches, picnics and al-fresco dining, as well as storing salad leaves, fresh herbs and vegetables, whilst the pre-cut sheets remain a firm favourite for super speedy food storage. In contrast to cling film, WaxWrap is made from just four natural materials: organic cotton, organic Jojoba oil, pine resin and beeswax, allowing food to breathe the way nature intended.
Once used, WaxWrap can be washed using cold water and washing up liquid, then patted dry with a clean towel. They can be washed over and over and if used correctly should last for around a year (or approx. 200 times). What's more, when the wrap comes to the end of its long and happy life, it's completely compostable so, can even be used as an eco-firelighter.
Being a responsible and sustainable brand is not just a marketing ploy for WaxWrap, it is the founding ethos behind the initial launch of the brand. Vegetarian Society approved, every product sold helps to fight the plastic pollution problem as a donation is made to the non-profit community interest company Less Plastic, via 1% for the Planet.
So, people are encouraged to take a day to remember that every bit of wasted food has an environmental impact and NOW is the time to put a stop to food wastage – helping to save the planet and saving you money too!
