Details

Eureka! The perfect reusable alternative to that nasty toxic plastic food wrap! This ingenious entirely natural and non-toxic food wrap is made of a blend of hemp and certified organic cotton canvas impregnated with sustainably sourced beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin.

This extra large model is perfect for wrapping all kinds of large and oddly-shaped items such as bread, cheese, dishes of lasagna, watermelons and more! You can use two of them for extra large bread loaves or other "ginormous" items. You may also cut the giant flat to customize them for your special needs. Simply use the warmth of your hands and some gentle pressure to shape the wrap around the container or item you wish to protect.

Perfect for protecting cheese - yes, you can get rid of the plastic packaging as soon as you get the cheese home. Being both insulating and breathable, it works well for covering rising bread dough. It is also suitable for covering fermenting foods such as yogurt, kefir and butter milk. The coating is fluid resistant, so moisture will not leak through the actual fabric. Sauce may add a bit of color to the patina.

It is slightly adhesive and malleable at room temperature and stiffens when cool; holding the form you create. The fluid and air resistant natural coating keeps food fresh and is easy to clean. Simply hand-wash in COLD water with eco-friendly dish soap and enjoy the long life of this breathable, plastic free innovation. Abeego is not suitable for the dishwasher, microwave oven, direct heat or high temperatures. With proper care, you can expect it last many months, depending on use. At the end of it's life it can be cut up and composted, or used for other purposes.

To store it, roll or fold the wrap and keep in with your other food packaging in or your linen drawer. Keep between cutting boards to store flat.

Wrap really works Review by Amanda

I use this wrap for produce and cheese. It's magic - it really extends the life of produce and does great with cheese. I had two green peppers and one sheet of wrap. The one on its own lasted maybe three days; the one in the wrap lasted 3 weeks because I forgot about it (the downside of the wrap - can't tell what you have in it). Not sure it was truly still fresh but made great sloppy joes.

I would recommend following their recommendations for cleaning the wrap - dunking it repeatedly in hot soapy water kind of killed it pretty fast. Now I just wipe it down unless it gets dirty. It's better than plastic wrap or stale produce, and I'm trying to get the newest ones to last longer. Guessing I'll get about 4-5 dozen uses out of each piece with better care. (Posted on 11/3/2014)
Not organic cotton Review by No More Plastic

This is the most disappointing product purchase from Life Without Plastic. Abeego's website only lists some of their products as having organic cotton. The Giant Flats are currently not one of them. The label on the product just says cotton. When contacting this company, it was found that their supplier isn't able to guarantee organic all of the time and because of that some products have non organic cotton. So this product remains unused. It does gain two stars because at least it uses beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin. A similar product to this that only uses certified organic cotton is Beeswrap.

Life Without Plastic Response:

Thank you, Maryann, for your useful feedback. This was a concern of ours also and we have been in contact with Abeego. They explained that they have been using organic cotton since the beginning, but at the beginning they had challenges getting a steady supply of organic cotton so they had to use conventional cotton and hemp blend to stay in business - and at that time they did not label the products as organic because they could not guarantee it. They now have a reliable supplier of certified organic cotton (and we have seen the certification) and all their packaging will soon be changing to reflect this. The missing mention of organic on their website was an error, and it will be corrected shortly.

Abeego is an excellent, ethical company with heart making high quality products we stand behind.

All the best,

The LWP Team
