Sustainable living is not a new concept, but in recent years more & more of us are embracing a greener lifestyle. From making a conscious effort to recycle to eating locally sourced food, there are many ways to encourage a more sustainable way of living. And one of the easiest places to start? In the kitchen. From cooking essentials to food storage must-haves, we take a look at some of the very best brands who are producing eco-friendly alternatives to our everyday kitchen staples…

In a world that’s abuzz with sustainable living products, Bee’s Wrap was created as the natural alternative to plastic wrap. From start to finish, close attention is paid to the ingredients and materials used throughout the entire production process, and each product is entirely reusable, biodegradable and compostable. Not to mention easy to look at.

Gone are the days of single-use plastic wrap with no personality. Wrap up a chunk of cheese in ocean-inspired Bee’s Wrap, store the other half of your lemon in an adorable bear pattern, or keep that homemade bread as a snack for later. Use the warmth of your hands to create a seal around the food or bowl, and just like magic the seal will hold its shape as it cools.

Each wrap is made with organic cotton, sustainably harvested beeswax, organic jojoba oil and tree resin. The natural antibacterial properties of beeswax and jojoba oil helps to keep food fresh, and allows Bee’s Wrap to be used again and again. Simply wash with cool water & soap, hang to dry and repeat. Each Bee’s Wrap should last for one year if you use it several times a week

Full Circle take everyday home care products and give them thoughtful features for better functionality. The humble squeegee is given a pivoting function for a simple storage solution.

They choose materials that take less energy to produce and cut back on greenhouse gases and harmful chemicals, making them as conscientious as they are long lasting.
