Why we chose The Chief Project?
- Beeswax Wraps made in Hong Kong - support local!
- Cute pattern designs
- Upcycles excess textile factory waste from the global fashion industry by turning them into reuseable daily products to replace single-use disposables
- Reduce waste by (upcycling) waste - the best low waste approach to sustainability in our opinion 😉
- Employs housewives with sewing skills who are looking to work again in Hong Kong
- Travel and on-the-go friendly: lightweight and small enough to fit into your pocket for when you're feeling peckish while being out
- Use for local bakery goods or small amount of (dried) produce. Liquids don't keep in beeswax wraps unfortunately. We suggest reusing your containers or glass jars for that.
- Reduces your plastic waste, e.g: plastic cling film
- Reuseable and washable. Save those money from buying cling film/wraps!
- Easy to use. Easy to fix when the wax wears out!
- 100% natural and biodegradable. 100% compostable.
- Beeswax: (naturally) antibacterial
- Keeps fresh food or cooked food *freshly fresh* in room temperature or in the fridge
3 pieces per box:

Use and Care
How to use
- Fold into a small pouch to carry dried snacks or sandwiches on the go.
- To use as food wrap: fold the wrap into a bag or wrap produce in while shopping for produce.
- Replace plastic cling film/wrap by placing over a container as a cover. Shape the wrap around the container and use your warm hands to soften the beeswax while sealing it.
Beeswax Wrap Care
- Wash it with cool water and few drops of detergent if needed.
- Do NOT wash with hot water as it will melt the beeswax off!
- Do not crush it or scrub it with brush or sponge.
- Hang to dry after washed and fold it up for storage.
- Do not use it on hot stuff or place it on hot surfaces.
- Do not put the wrap into washing machine or dish washer.
- Do not put the wrap into microwave or oven.
- Keep it away from heat.
PackagingThree beeswax wraps (family pack) in a paper box.
MaterialsUpcycled 100% cotton textile cloth dipped in beeswax
- Compost or recycle the paper box in the public paper recycling bins, or to Waste No Mall and Go Green SYP drop off points.
- Compost the cloth when it wears out. Beeswax is an organic matter - it is compostable! (Alternatively toss into bin if no textile recycling is available (after washing off beeswax.)
