You’ve made organic, gluten-free, nut-free, cruelty-free, fair-trade brownies from scratch for the potluck. You’re getting ready to pack up and hop on your bike, so you quickly…. wrap your offerings in plastic wrap? Put them in a plastic container? Tuck them into a plastic Ziplock bag?!
Food storage and plastic seem to go hand-in-hand these days, which is a real shame when many of us are going to the trouble of making food choices that minimize our impact on the planet and maximize health. Abeego is a Canadian company that is trying to assist us in our efforts to rid plastics from our lives by creating an all-natural reusable food wrap. Hurray!
What's To Love?:
– Mama-run business
– Canadian-made from start to finish
– Plastic free alternative that you will reach for daily!
Made of hemp, organic cotton, beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin so you can keep food fresh without relying on harmful plastics. This line-up of earth safe materials also boasts natural anti-fungal, anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties. Healthy and safe!
Genius! I have the 3 size flats and they are perfect for wrapping up the ends of fancy cheeses, covering a bowl of frosting and packing a sandwich for work. Multi-tasking at it’s finest. My Abeego flats have been around for months and show no signs of letting up anytime soon.
Abeego is a start-up company out of Victoria BC that took a daily dilemma, having to store food in plastic to keep it fresh, and came up with an eco-solution. Mama-founded and family run, this little business is gaining steam and keeping true to its environmental and socially responsible roots by creating local jobs and a useful and affordable product for conscious families.
Using only North American & renewable materials and manufacturing their products from start to finish in Canada has helped to keep Abeego's carbon footprint small.
Abeego diverts tons of plastic food wrap from the landfill. And their waste management goes beyond replacing throw-away products with a multi-use counterpart. Abeego has thought about the life cycle of their reusable wraps and has turned any waste byproducts into a potential resource; All the salvageable materials are repurposed (as Twisties, their riff on the twist tie) and the rest will biodegrade naturally.
At $18 for a three pack of wraps that should last a year or more, Abeego is a savvy investment.
