We’ve managed to swap plastic bags for reusable bags, plastic straws to bamboo or metal. We’re taking our reusable drinks bottles everywhere we go.
Why not try swapping cling film, tinfoil and sandwich bags for these beeswax reusable compostable food wraps.
Handmade by myself ...
A great gift for Christmas and a great way to cut down on single use plastic.
The beeswax is cornish and comes straight from the hive. 100% cotton and a drizzle of pine resin for extra cling! £12 per pack. Check us out at:

At Poplar we pride ourselves on delivering a completely plastic-free experience for our customers 📦 All our products, packaging and swing tags are reusable, compostable or recyclable ♻️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While a branded packaging experience with stickers and decorations can be memorable, we prefer to keep our waste and packaging as minimal as possible, and encourage our customers to dispose of the packaging through composting, re-using, or, as a last resort, recycling 📦🌿🌾
Flashback two years....Waxiwraps was hardly a twinkle on the horizon; we’d just launched, and on this day were preparing for the Denmark Markets.
So much has happened in the past two years; we’ve made and packaged and dispersed over 30,000 Waxiwraps at last count, all over Oz and have posted orders to Austria, Italy, UK, USA, Germany, Sweden, Phillipines, Norway, and Canada.....it blows me away that somewhere out there are thousands of you wonderful people using our Waxiwraps to reduce single use plastic wrap.
Thank you thank you thank you for getting us to where are today; I’m grateful for every single customer!

Making beeswax food wraps isn’t really difficult, but it is pretty darn labor intensive. Here’s a little #behindthescenes
of my #homemade
process. I will tell you, cutting fabric takes time and patience, crushing the pine resin is loud, waiting for the mixture to melt properly (the resin has a much higher melting temp than the wax) is lengthy, and overall the project is messy. Thankfully my husband is also patient as well as supportive, we feel good creating a more sustainable lifestyle, and the end products are just so darn fun and pretty 😍
Got some custom order requests but want to gague any additional interest so I know how much to order!!! Any desire for these cute prints?
Bears and teepees beeswax wraps for your lunch. Or wrap your cheese, or the end of a squash etc. All these recent wraps are 13 x 13 inches, a very handy size.

Cotton eco friendly string bags - produce bags - shopping bags you name it these beauties can be used for so many things and the super fun colours are much more fun than the green none pretty shopping bags and to be honest these fit so much in them I take a few to the shops and I’m sorted! If they need a wash just pop them in a bra bag and into the washing machine and they are good to use again... Which colour would you choose??

Make your own beeswax food wraps! #saynotoplastic
Organic cotton fabric
0.5 oz. copal resin
1.25 oz. beeswax pastilles or grated beeswax
1 Tbsp. organic jojoba oil
Large popsicle stick
Dedicated paint brush
Wash and dry fabric.
Cut fabric into desired shapes and sizes.
Place copal resin in a double boiler and set in a saucepan over medium high heat.
Add water to saucepan until the resin inside the double boiler is below waterline.
Allow resin to melt. This takes about 45 minutes to an hour (and will make your kitchen smell amazing!) The resin does not melt into a smooth liquid. When melted it is a thick mass that you can draw up a few inches before the tail hardens and snaps.
Preheat oven to 300°F.
Add beeswax and jojoba oil, stir to combine. It will take about 15 more minutes for resin to dissolve and blend with wax.
Cover large cookie sheet with a sheet of parchment paper larger than your biggest piece of fabric.
Place fabric on parchment paper.
Brush mixture onto fabric. It might solidify, which is fine, you'll be able to redistribute later.
Put cookie sheet in oven for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and use brush to evenly saturate cloth with mixture. Work quickly, as you don’t want the wax to begin to solidify.
Flip fabric on pan and place back in oven for 3 minutes.
Remove from oven, quickly brush to saturate, and remove from parchment paper.
Hang to cool.
Rinse with cool water and dry before using.
