V Eco Food Wraps

V Eco Food Wraps originated because owner Jan, like me, was concerned about her plastic usage and wanted to reduce it as much as possible.   Reading Jan's story, she obviously spent a lot of time researching the subject of food wraps, with a few ups and downs, resulting in her making vegan friendly wraps, even though she is not vegan herself.

The packaging has been carefully thought about too, delivered in a cardboard pack with a cotton bag to store the wraps in.

The wraps are made with tree resin, candelilla wax and cold pressed jojoba oil and that is it, no chemicals just natural ingredients.   The wraps have over locked edges to avoid fraying and do lose their adhesion over time, but you can up cycle them, so Jan suggests adding ribbon to use them as jar covers.   I shall get my thinking cap on and find other ways to use mine in the future, but if I run out of ideas I can pop them into my compost bin, as they are biodegradable.

There are various designs to choose from, come in packs of three or five in small, medium and large sizes, so I chose green daisies.

There are some do's and don'ts like not using with hot food and you can clean them in cool water with washing up liquid and leave them to dry.

So how do they work, well the heat of your hands warms the wax and makes the wrap pliable so you can mould it round whatever you want, be it a pan as in the first picture or glass dish in the second.  The wraps work perfectly and stick really well, so once in place do not move, curl up or lose adhesion.   

I think the wraps are an ingenuous way to reduce your plastic, no need for cling film or plastic bags and they look so pretty too and make a great addition to the kitchen.
