Bee-utiful Food Storage
Beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil are great ingredients in beauty products or candles, although we never thought they’d help replace Saran wrap.
But that was one of the many lovely surprises of Abeego, a Victoria-based food storage company. Their products include sheets and pouches made of a hemp and cotton fabric coated in the above ingredients. Take a sheet, mold it around the top of a bowl or a piece of fruit, and store. When you are done with it, wash in cold water. With care, Abeego sheets will last a year.
So not only are we ridding our fridge and food of BPAs, but we are also putting a little less in the trash. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
