I'm Cheryl, I am a passionate eco-mama fighting in anyway I can to eradicate plastic from this earth.
My beeswax wrap journey began in Australia, just over 3 years ago. Every time I rolled another piece of cling wrap out of the box, I felt uneasy, not only did I worry about the plastic contact with my food, the fact that it would just end up in the earth drove me crazy. I tried to stop using it, but it was such a convenient product. Then, I heard about beeswax wraps and immediately had to give them a go. After one try I was hooked. I couldn't believe how easy they were to use, to clean and they worked! I actually wrapped a block of cheese and it stayed fresh.. and my half cut avocado was still green two days later.. What kind of magic was this?!
Fast forward 3 years, I'm now living in Hong Kong, where plastic washes up on the beaches and old styrofoam waste sits in the gutters in the local city streets - this has opened my eyes to the state of single-use plastic being thrown away all over the world. Obviously I can't change the whole world, but I know that one person CAN make a difference. With the love that I had for the beeswax wraps, combined with my ridiculous obsession for fabric, this was the opportunity for me to do just that, make a difference!
So I experimented with different waxes and resins.. truth be told, it took me months and months.. and months to get the perfect blend to have soft, pliable, sticky, but not too sticky, gorgeous wraps.. and in the end, I loved my recipe more than any of the wraps I'd purchased in the past.
So that's how Wrap It Up HK was born..
Our beeswax food wraps are all handmade at home with oodles of love right here in Discovery Bay, Hong Kong!I'll be at my very first market in Discovery Bay, HK on Sunday 10th March. I'll have a range of sizes to test out - a good opportunity for you to check them out if you've never tried them. Come along, I'd love to meet you and show you just how great they are.
Thanks so much for your support and happy wrapping xx
