Behind the Scenes at Bee's Wrap

Posted on December 20, 2017 by Bees Wrap

You know the saying: It's the most wonderful time of the year. And at Bee's Wrap, as we race toward the holidays, this is also the busiest time of year. The days are shorter, the temperatures are dropping — and the hive is a-buzz. 

The phone is ringing off of the hook. Members of our staff are darting this way and that, passing on messages to the shipping department. But amid the chaos there's excitement. Christmas carols are playing in the workshop, and every now and then we strike up a singalong.

When we founded Bee’s Wrap in 2012, we worked out of founder Sarah Kaeck’s home. We grew into a bustling workshop in Bristol, Vermont — and during this year, one of incredible growth for us, we expanded our capacity, added members to our team, and happily sent more Bee’s Wrap out into the world. We took over the entirety of the building that houses our workshop, and stretching into the one next door. As we rush toward the holidays this year, we're reminded of how far we've come, how much we've grown, and how grateful we are to everyone who has helped along the way.

 

Amid all this growth, we still take pride in touching every step in our production process, from sourcing sustainably harvested beeswax to handling all of our production in-house to sending Bee’s Wrap out into the world.

And most of all, we take pride in sending Bee's Wrap out into the world. From our home to yours, happy holidays this season!

The Bee's Wrap Gift Guide

Posted on December 20, 2017 by Bees Wrap

We’re biased, of course, but we love giving Bee’s Wrap. Everyone eats — and everyone, to our mind, deserves a better way to store food. 

On its own, Bee's Wrap makes a great stocking stuffer, host or hostess gift, or “just because” present. And we’re the first to say that when it comes to giving, there’s no need to go over the top: the small, thoughtful gift is often the most perfect kind. 

But we also know that sometimes you want to add a little oomph to a present. And that’s when we pair Bee’s Wrap with a few other favorite products. Hunting for ideas? We've got you covered. 

sandwichwrap

Green On the Go

Our sandwich wrap, paired with a few other zero-waste essentials, makes it easy to eat on the go without generating trash in the process. We love a small stainless steel cup (this one from Klean Kanteen is the perfect size to tuck in a lunchbox or handbag), a cloth napkin, bamboo utensils, and a reusable straw. Together, you’ve got a lunch kit that’s beautiful, eco-friendly, and designed well.

cheese wrap

Cheese, Please

There’s no better way to store cheese than Bee’s Wrap; our naturally breathable wraps are easy to form around blocks of cheese, and prevent cheese from growing slimy (as it so often does in plastic wrapping). Our cheese wrap set features three wraps sized for the cheddar-, gouda-, and brie-loving friend in your life. Pair with a beautiful cutting board for an instant cheese board. 

Eco-friendly kitchen gear 

Green Kitchen Swaps

The kitchen is the heart of the home, right? There's no better place to embrace beauty, simplicity, and environmentally friendly swaps. Pair our assorted three-pack (our bestseller for good reason!) with a few other useful kitchen tools to replace disposable goods — like a glass bottle for cleaning solution from Grove, and scrubbing brushes to swap in for your sponges.

One for the Bees

Perhaps the most natural pairing of all, we love to give Bee’s Wrap alongside a jar of honey from local beekeepers. Look for small beekeeping operations with a commitment to responsible beekeeping; by supporting these beekeepers, you’re supporting healthy pollinator populations in your region. What could be sweeter?
