Abeego is a wrap which protects food while letting it breathe. It’s flexible and slightly adhesive so it can easily be shaped around food and bowls or folded into packages to store food at room temperature, in the fridge or the freezer.
Made from hemp and certified organic cotton that’s been infused with pure beeswax, certified organic jojoba oil, and tree resin.
Hand wash in COLD water with an eco-friendly soap and air dry. In cold water the beeswax coating will be stiff, providing a stable surface to clean. Abeego washes like a plate, not a piece of fabric. It can handle a light scrub with a gentle dishcloth or sponge.
Store rolled, folded or flat (between cutting boards).
Abeego can last a year or longer with proper care. At the end of its life it can be composted. Not suitable for microwaves or exposure to hot temperatures.
The small pack contains 6 small wraps, 18cm x 18cm each.

Reuse is often confused with recycling, but they are really quite different. Reuse in the broadest sense means any activity that lengthens the life of an item. Recycling, on the other hand, is the reprocessing of an item into a new raw material for use in a new product. Reuse is so important because at the same time that it confronts the challenges of waste reduction, it also sustains a comfortable quality of life and supports a productive economy. It helps support a sustainable economy in the following ways:
* Keeps goods and materials out of the waste stream
* Preserves the 'embodied energy' that was originally used to manufacture an item
* Reduces the strain on valuable resources, such as fuel, forests and water suppliers.
* Creates less air and water pollution then making a new item or recycling.
* Results in less hazardous waste.
* Saves money in purchases and disposal costs.
Abeego was founded in 2008 by Toni Desrosiers and was born from the question “how did we store food before plastic wrap?” Toni used her background in holistic nutrition to research the history of food preservation and look for a solution in nature. She found it in Beeswax, a material that’s been used around the world for hundreds of years.
Toni and her husband Colin manufacture the Abeego range in their own factory in British Columbia, Canada.
