    The food wraps are made with natural materials like cotton, beeswax, and jojoba oil, which allow your food to breathe and last longer. Use cold water to wash them and leave them to air dry like a dish. You can use them as many times as you like for up to a year.

    "If you're looking for ways to be more eco-friendly with food storage, I gotchu: Bees Wrap is made of organic cotton treated with jojoba oil and tree resin. It works just like the alternative but is washable, reusable, and compostable. It's also a lot thicker, so it can hold more watery foods, like tofu, without any leakage." —Alice Prendergast
