Abeego: Reusable Beeswax Food Wrap

Never struggle with a flimsy tupperware lid or unruly plastic wrap again! A solution to preserving last night’s leftovers is here and it’s called Abeego. A popular item in IPPINKA’s permanent collection, Abeego is a reusable, all-natural beeswax food wrap that keeps food fresh longer. It wraps directly on to food or containers, and can be reused for approximately 1 year.

Plastic accounts for 12 per cent of all household waste. Toni Desrosiers and Colin Johnston, a B.C. couple, created Abeego to reduce their plastic use and food waste. Now you can, too!

Abeego easily wraps around jars, containers and solid food to cover and protect it. It’s self-adhesive so you don’t have to wet it. Simply take it out of the package and begin wrapping! You can use the warmth of your hands to mould Abeego directly on to cheeses and half cut fruits and vegetables. Abeego’s material is breathable and insulating so it’s a perfect cover for rising bread dough or fermenting foods such as yogurt. The coating is also fluid resistant so moisture won’t leak through the fabric although sauces may add colour to it. For up to one month, Abeego can also survive in the freezer to cover those items that need to stay cool.

These unique food wraps are made from hemp and certified cotton that’s been infused with pure beeswax, certified organic jojoba oil and tree resin. These high quality materials have natural anti-fungal, antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties that create a protective material that allows food to breathe. Abeego, ultimately, extends the life of your food while preserving its natural flavours.

To care for your Abeego, hand wash it in cold water with an eco-friendly dish soap and a gentle sponge. The cold water stiffens the beeswax coating creating a hard surface to clean, so you can wash the Abeego like washing a plate. Dry it with a towel for immediate use and keep your Abeego away from dishwashers, microwaves and direct heat.
