Abeego was invented in 2008 by Toni Desrosiers. The original beeswax wrap was created on two founding principles. Firstly, it’s logical. It breathes. If living food needed to be wrapped in airtight wrap the rind, peel or skin would be airtight. It’s not. Secondly, it’s inspirational. It looks good, feels good, smells good and fosters a healthier relationship with food. The best part? Toni has inspired others to take part in the beeswax food wrap movement - and she says “what an honour it’s been to pave the way”.
Why we love them: smells and feels wonderful and so natural - much better than plastic wrap. It makes you feel safer about how your food is stored and it’s a brilliant feeling to wash it and reuse it rather than putting it in the bin. We know it’s the future of food wrap. Read more below...
Abeego is sustainable on many levels:
Abeego is all natural. Every ingredient used comes from the earth and will return to it without a trace.
Abeego is zero waste. “Waste” is actually a resource. From day one Toni adopted a waste free commitment so they make amazing twist ties and fire starters, for example, with the excess.
Abeego lasts. Planned obsolesce should be obsolete. Beeswax is valuable so they make Abeego durable. You’ll will most likely add to your collection before replacing tired wraps.
Abeego uses minimal energy to produce. Primarily people powered, except their fabulous waxing machine that has tripled their output using the same amount of energy.
