How much waste does your family generate in a year, you think? Well, about five years ago, the magic number was (drumroll, please) 1.5 tonnes per Australian home! And in fact, what ends up in landfill each year can cover the entire state of Victoria.

Wow. Can you just imagine?

Plastic rubbish is a particularly massive problem. Think of every single-use piece of plastic you’ve used at home. They’re toxic, take forever to degrade, and just ‘literally everywhere’ now - littering and polluting the water, soil, and even in the air, and making us and our loved ones sick.

If all this makes you think about making a change today - even just one small change - let it be something to do with plastic.

Natural food wraps are the bees’ knees

Beeswax wraps are a reusable, eco-friendly alternative to aluminum foil, baking paper, cling wrap, and most single-use plastics. However, they can be a little expensive; commercial brands sell for about $10 per piece, on the average. Certainly, a wise investment in the long run but maybe still a bit heavy on the budget, because we’ve gotten so used to the easier choice of mass-produced, cheap plastics.

Good news: Beeswax wraps are not difficult at all to make at home, as you’ll learn in this two-hour class. Come away with bees wax food wraps and a recipe to keep the party going at home.
