Reusable Beeswax Food Wrap

The Khala & Co. Beeswax Food Wrap is a must have if you are looking to reduce waste in your kitchen. This 13”x13” large wrap is made from a cotton and hemp material with a blend of natural waxes (including beeswax), coconut oil, and natural tree resin. Wrap your sandwich or a snack directly in this reusable wrap or cover a bowl of leftover food to save for later. When you are ready to reuse it, simply hand wash it with soap and cool water. When the wrap begins to get worn (typically a year), cut it up and throw it into an approved local compost bin.

Bamboo Toothbrush

Using the Brush with Bamboo toothbrush is a great way to reduce your plastic consumption. The handle is made from bamboo and the bristles are made up of castor bean oil. If you are composting at home, you can chop up the bamboo handle into small pieces and place into your compost bin or ask your local composter if they can accept the bamboo handle. As for the bristles, although they are 100% bio-based they are not compostable or recyclable. Remove those bristles and place in the trash. The goal of switching to this toothbrush is to significantly reduce your plastic waste!

Packaging: Paper Box
Alternative to: Plastic toothbrushes
