Bee’s Wrap

A Sustainable Partner

Who They Are

Up in the Green Mountains of Vermont, one mother searched for a plastic-free way to store her farm fresh food and reduce her family’s waste. In 2012, Sarah Kaeck created the sustainable food storage every household needs, Bee’s Wrap! Kaeck was inspired by her family, her love for cooking, the produce grown in her own farm, and the need for items with minimal impact on the environment. By bringing back an old tradition of wrapping food with beeswax cloths, Kaeck has upgraded sustainability within the kitchen. Her technique is simple, yet effective. By using a combination of GOTS-certified organic cotton, sustainably sourced US beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin, Bee’s Wrap has created a new way to wrap, store, and transport food without the need for plastic. Unlike harmful plastic wrap, Bee’s Wrap can be reused for up to a year. Finally, food storage that’s both easy and eco-friendly!

Kaeck, who once was a stay at home mom, now runs the small business in Middlebury, Vermont. When Bee’s Wrap first began, it was run by a Vermont team of five women who would hand-paint each wrap with beeswax. Now, Kaeck employs a growing team of locals to help run, operate, and spread the word of sustainable food storage.
