Why the Bee the Planet wraps?

It is estimated that a person uses more than 180 square meters of plastic film per year.

Bee the Planet offers a sustainable and reusable alternative to eliminate the single-use plastics in your kitchen and in your daily life.

What are the Bee the Planet wraps?

A Bee the Planet wrap is a Tupperware lid, a sandwich wrapper, a bag to carry your dry fruits or to buy in bulk. It is a way to keep your vegetables fresh for a longer time...

· The wrap is a fabric that is moldable. Using your hands you can get the desired form and use it for any purpose that substitutes the plastic film and the aluminum foil.

· 100% organic cotton fabric treated with ecologic apiculture beeswax, sweet almond oil and pine resin. All of our raw materials used for the waxing process are from Spain.

How to take care of the Bee the Planet wraps

The wraps can be washed after each use, always using cold water. If you want to, you can use neutral soap. Let them dry and they will be ready to be used again.

Storing meat or fish is not recommended.

Look for a reachable drawer; roll the wraps on the recycled cardboard of the kitchen paper or put them inside of a pot. Make them reachable, above all. In this way, we will avoid resorting to the plastic!

How long do they last?

Their lasting depends very much on their care. Washing them in hot water and subjecting them to high temperatures should be avoided. This is why it is recommended to let the bowl cool before keeping it in the fridge.

Once every two months, it is advisable to put them inside of the oven for 3 minutes at 100 degrees. Place your wrap on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Then, take the tray out of the oven and let it air. Once this is done, it will be ready to be used.

If you look after your wrap, it will last up to one year! Later, you can extend its life one more year with our DIY kit. Just grate a bit of the mixture over the wrap and put it inside of the oven for 5 minutes at 100 degrees. Once it is dry, it will last one more year!

Once the wrap's main function is over, remember not to throw it away! It is 100% cotton and you can reuse it for anything you want: napkins, kitchen towel... You can even compost it!

The Bee the Planet wraps

The Bee the Planet wraps come in a pack of 3 different sizes:

· S size (16cmx22cm approximately) Ideal for small foods we keep in the fridge, such as half an avocado, half a tomato...

· M size (26cmx33cm approximately) Perfect for sandwiches or bigger foods.

· L size (33cmx33cm approximately) Do you want to keep leftovers in a dish or in a bowl? This is the size you were looking for!

These are the different prints. You will be able to choose the one you like best once the Verkami is finished.

Moreover, as most of the times we forget what we keep inside of the bowls, we have designed some labels you can cut and use so as to know what you have inside of them.

Rewards

Who are we?

We are Miriam and Natalia. We are sisters, and ever since we were little, we loved doing things together. One day we started questioning ourselves our living habits in relation with the consumption and the amount of waste we generate. It was here where we decided we wanted to do something significant to achieve a change. It was here where Bee the Planet was born.

Miriam and Natalia
Miriam and Natalia

Our goal is to offer a chance to take part in a real change that is born within each one of us; a change of consciousness that will improve all the aspects of our lives.

Coherence, minimalism, consciousness and respect are the fundamental pillars of our lives and of our project.

Where will your contributions go?

We want the Bee the Planet wraps to be made of local raw materials.

In order for our project to become a reality, we need to start the manufacturing process with a minimum of 200 units, which will cost 2000 euros. You can see the breakdown in the following chart:

Planned timetable

We are very eager to mark the beginning of it, and to do so we are already working on it.

Once the campaign in Verkami is finished, we will contact the patrons in order to know the desired print in the wraps.
We will send all your rewards within a month.
