About This Class

Eco food wraps are a reusable, eco-friendly, and plastic-free alternative to glad wrap (a.k.a. cling wrap). They can be used for almost anything in your kitchen you would use plastic wrap for: fruit and veggies, leftovers, bread, sandwiches, even cooked meat - you name it. They last up to one year.

The best news: they are really easy to make yourself!

Eco food wraps also make fantastic gifts.

 

In this class I will teach you how to make your own eco food wraps, using cotton fabric and beeswax. You can make different sizes and shapes, use different patterns, and let your creativity run loose. It's a fun activity, also for kids.
