Quite a few months ago I started discovering awesome little products to help reduce my waste. I know; buying stuff to reduce your waste, seems bonkers. But I believe there are SOME cases where it is very useful. Such as stainless steel straw, reusable drinking cup, reusable food wrap etc.
This is where I introduce, the Abeego wrap! The love is real. Abeego reusable food wrap is made from Hemp, Organic Cotton, Beeswax, Tree Resin, Jojoba Oil. It is used in all the same ways you would use that awful cling wrap. You know the one that sticks to everything, never tears off properly, gets a hole pocked in it, that comes packaged in a cardboard box with a cardboard inner roll and a metal cutter that you slice your finger on? That stuff. Then the best bit – when you are done with it you can throw it in the bin, along with the cardboard box, metal strip and cardboard inner role.
Or, you can buy a pack of Abeego reusable food wraps and use them over and over and over again. No nasty plastic leaching chemicals into your food, no waste to landfill, everything just looks awesome wearing Abeego and your friends will be so jealous!
As soon as I discovered Abeego and went online to order, I either needed to buy from England or America and face the postage and awful exchange rate. So I bought some when I was on holiday in England in September last year. I have been using it ever since and the love has not diminished.
For once, I decided to break with tradition and do what my husband told me; start selling these awesome products that I use, right here in South Africa. He is right, it probably is a good idea. I am not going to set up an online shop straight away. This is something I might do later in the year. Again, I am going to break with tradition and not go running head first like a bull in a china shop. I will be ordering some products in the next week and in February will be selling them by word of mouth, and they can then be collected or sent out by Postnet or courier. I don’t think I need to explain the dismal Rand/Dollar situation to any South African. Please note that these will be sold for the equivalent of $18, which is the Abeego RRP. Only once the order is received I will set an approx price in Rands. Just in case you know who does something crazy (again) and we have another currency disaster …
This would make a great gift to yourself, which is obvious, but how’s about a gift for that person that is SO hard to buy for. Winner!
Please do visit their site where they have loads of information and tips on how to use and care for your Abeego. Here is a quick video that sums up how you can use it.
Here is some info about the Abeego Variety Pack which I have taken from their site:
Abeego Flats are the ideal kitchen companion. Explore the versatility of the multiple sizes by bending and shaping the Flats to suit your individual food storage needs. Simply press and form over dishes to cover leftovers. Package cheese, form around produce, wrap lunch items, baked goods and more.
Use pressure in combination with the warmth of your hands to form it tightly around the item to be stored. Abeego will be slightly adhesive and malleable at room temperature and will stiffen when cool, holding the shape you created. The fluid and air resistant beeswax coating keeps food fresh and is easy to clean. Store your food the way nature intended with Abeego Wraps.
Wraps | Variety Pack contains:
- 1 Small Wrap 18 cm x 18 cm 7” x 7”
- 1 Medium Wrap 25 cm x 25 cm 10” x 10”
- 1 Large Wrap 33 cm x 33 cm 13” x 13”
Simply hand wash in COLD, soapy water and towel or air dry. Abeego prefers gentle, low alcohol, biodegradable soap.
*Not suitable for the dishwasher, microwave, direct heat or high temperatures. Avoid direct contact with raw meat.
Caring for your Abeego as recommended will ensure that it lasts over a year. When it has finally run its course Abeego can return to the earth whence it came via your compost or trash receptacle.
