A rhyme for Kath by Cambridge Beekeeper

A rhyme for Kath by Cambridge Beekeeper

Here at BeeBee Wraps we are pretty good friends with beekeepers and their bees. They provide us with excellent quality local beeswax from happy bees who are cared for well. 

When I was asked to give a talk at the Cambridge Beekeepers' Association I jumped at the chance to share the news of why we use their beeswax. The evening was delightful, I really enjoyed speaking to a room full of like-minded bee enthusiasts.

How do bees make beeswax?

Beeswax is the original food storage system, storing honey for bees. Did you know to produce a pound of wax they need to ingest 6-8 pounds of honey. The British Bee Keepers Association estimate that bees need to visit an incredible 30 million flowers to produce a pound of beeswax. Read on to find out more about how they do it.

Imagine being out at sea on a small boat, closer to astronauts than to any person on land. Surely, most of us would be a little freaked out....not Kiko.

Kiko Matthews rowed 3000 nautical miles across the Atlantic, alone and unaided, setting a new world record. I got the chance to chat to Kiko about her amazing adventure, poo stories and all!

Happy 1st Birthday BeeBee Wraps

Happy 1st Birthday BeeBee Wraps

So we had a party. It was a thank you party as much as a birthday party. So many people helped to get BeeBee Wraps launched. We just wanted to show how grateful we are!

A year ago we sold our first BeeBee Wrap. Back then it was just me and I didn't have any expectations. There were people out there searching for an alternative to clingfilm and we found them. The story started...

What is the problem with cling film?

Why is cling film so bad? Cling film is one of the most commonly used single use plastics in the UK, it's hard to recycle and is made from nurdles, tiny plastic pellets that are polluting our oceans and entering the food chain. BeeBee Beeswax wraps are a natural and fully compostable alternative to cling film.
