ETEE Reusable Food Wraps Review
I first encountered etee’s Wrap a while ago when it was sent to me as part of a subscription box, and then I promptly never used it (which is one reason why I no longer subscribe to any subscription boxes). But one day, I needed some Saran Wrap to enclose a leftover banana-nut loaf and I was out. And I pulled out that etee’s Wrap and never went back.
Etee’s Wrap — Her modern-day creation is a classy little reusable scrap of organic cotton covered in beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin that can be used as an alternative to plastic wrap, perfect for consciousness desk-sandwich-eaters and school-cafeteria-lunchersalike.
Just enclose your sandwich or cookies or half of an onion in the Etee’s Wrap (which, incidentally, smells like a beeswax candle, or a cozy slice of bread with honey), and warm the edges with your hands — that melts the wax a bit and it adheres to itself. Even though I’ve never had the wrap come undone once it’s securely warmed, as a second line of defense, I will occasionally add the little bit of twine that the wraps come with, if I plan on putting it in my bag and toting it around all day. The wraps also fit nicely over bowls of extra salad or leftover containers, and they’re fine in the fridge.
Once you’re finished using the wrap, just rinse it with cold water and some dish soap, and reuse it … for up to a year. (I keep a pile of used ones in the same drawer where I stow tote bags for grocery shopping and extra cloth napkins.) And then, once a wrap has run its course, you can compost it. They’re not good in the microwave or dishwasher or anything with heat or hot water, though, since the wax will melt and get damaged. They’re not good for raw-meat storage, either.
The wraps come in several sizes — I have the large and medium — as well as bread- and sandwich-specific wraps. I mostly use the wrap when bringing a handful of nuts or a muffin or a sandwich to work. I open and spread it out on my desk, and it serves as a little plate. And my office fills up with the smell of waxy honey.
Etee is a company that is developing a material that erases the need to add more plastic and pollution into the world, resulting in less waste as well. The products are available through purchase from the >>>>official website<<<<
What is Etee?
Society today is incredibly wasteful. It seems that consumers thrive on having an easy to way to deal with meals, leftovers, and even their fashion apparel. However, while it is nice to have the convenience of throwing something away, consumers could save a lot of money if they just focused on preservation somewhat. That is what Etee hopes to help with.
Etee has developed a line of products that functions at the same level as plastic wrap and other forms of the material, but with the use of natural preservatives. By learned how to cultivate the ingredients and produce this material, the company soon developed a method that kept food fresh that was biodegradable, natural, and even reusable.
Since that development, they have turned that method into a few assorted products that consumers can use in their own kitchens.
Right now, there are a few products that Etee has available for consumers to start cutting plastic from their lives, including:
- Food wraps
- Reusable cutlery
- Lunch bags
- Carrying bag
The food wraps only require that the user warm them up with their hands first to make them more pliable and able to adhere to different surfaces. They can be used to individually wrap different foods, or over the top of a container. The material essentially sticks to itself, so there is no worry about the surface of the food or container used. While they will work for up to 30 days in a freezer, the company warns against putting them on raw meat. Choose from small, medium, or large sheets, starting at $15.
The reusable cutlery looks just like the plastic version, but it is made with bamboo instead, which is exponentially stronger. It is lightweight, and comes in a reclaimed leather and organic cotton sheath to protect the materials. It is available for $29, and comes in five different colors for the sheath.
The bags and accessories use organic cotton to provide their strength, which is actually grown much differently than regular cotton. It requires less water to flourish, and is much more environmentally friendly. The totes are $125 each, which the carry is $65.
All of these products can be found in the holiday gift pack as well, which offers 12 multipacks for $144.
