Our Beeswax Snack Bags are handmade from organic cotton and organic cotton/bamboo mix treated with natural beeswax, organic jojoba oil and pine resin. They come in packs of two, one stripy and the other pink, green or blue. If you have a preference of colour for the second bag then please add a note at checkout; we will honour it if possible but will be subject to current stock availability.
Measuring 18cm x 28cm, they are great for children’s snacks, a sandwich or fruit. Because of the beeswax, they keep their contents can be reused again and again and when you’re done with them, they can be chucked in the compost where they will biodegrade, or used as firelighters.
Handmade in the UK using ethically sourced raw materials - the cotton is made from GOTS certified organic thread which is woven on household power looms in Kerala, India. Organic cotton is grown in healthier soil - organic cotton farmers use traditional techniques such as crop rotation and natural fertilisation, which results in soil that stores nutrients, water and carbon. Farmers are able to save their seeds from the prior year harvest and are not exposed to damaging pesticides. Crop diversity and rotation reduces food insecurity for the farmers, and biodiversity is benefited and pollinating insects are allowed to flourish. Chemical run off into the water supplies from fabric processing is massively reduced and the fabric itself is not laced with harmful chemicals.
Give your snack bagd a good shake regularly to get rid of crumbs. To clean, turn it inside out and wash gently with cold or lukewarm soapy water. Leave to dry inside out and then turn around the right way and refold.
Keep away from heat sources - ovens, microwave, dishwasher and naked flames.
