Today I’m throwing something a little different into the Yummy Beet mixer, chatting about a subject I’m passionate about: lunch and leftovers storage (seriously, I’m passionate about it!). This is a more “behind the scenes” look into my kitchen and how I make it work, sharing the healthy living products I swear by.
At home, we have an entire cupboard devoted to locking glass containers, mason jars, water bottles, stainless steel tins and now, Bee’s Wrap. These products help us to reduce food waste, keeping it from drying out or going “off,” making sure we eat everything we prepare.
I was introduced to Bee’s Wrap through MightyNest and their MightyFix program. The MightyFix delivers one healthy living product to your door each month, helping to make sustainable living easy all year long. I adore their lunch gear, including glass water bottles and stainless steel bento boxes.
In MightyFix’s search for reusable materials for fresh lunches and healthy kitchens, they’re often surprised by simple, beautiful solutions that seem natural and obvious once you see them (me: likewise!). Each month, you can try something new for a modest fee (promo code for readers is below) without having to run to the store. All of the research is done for you – and they research and curate some absolutely stunning sustainable products.

Bee’s Wrap (the product you’ll receive with your $3 Yummy Beet reader offer from MightyFix) is a brilliant alternative to the rolls and rolls of plastic wrap the typical family goes through every year for lunch prep and food storage.
Bee’s Wrap is made from organic cotton muslin, beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin—the combination of ingredients and the infused fabric create a malleable food wrap that can be used again and again. The simple warmth of your hands, along with a little forming, naturally creates a seal and as the beeswax cools, the material stiffens and holds the seal intact.
Another natural perk: Beeswax and jojoba oil have antibacterial qualities that help to keep food fresh – they also smell amazing. Bee’s Wrap is recommended for baked goods, cut fruits & vegetables, cheese (game-changer), bread and covering leftovers. (Not recommend for direct contact with meat.) I’ve found myself covering bowls of soup and stew, prepared kale salads and muffins (photo below), keeping everything incredibly fresh.
Washing and care for Bee’s Wrap: Simply wash the wrap in cool water with a mild dish soap and allow to air dry before folding into squares and storing in a drawer (like you would with your kitchen towels) or if you prefer, roll and store vertically in a container of choice. It stores tidily in our food storage cupboard, barely taking up any room at all.
And do you know where Bee’s Wrap is lovingly made? Vermont! If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember I went on a trip to Vermont last May and need to get back there asap. I’m a big fan of this state’s commitment to environmentally-friendly living.
