Upcoming: May 15th
Vegan BeesWax Wraps
As a consumer driven society heavily dependent on plastic, it can be daunting to imagine a reality without it. The great thing is that so many alternatives are making waves in the way we interact with our environment.
A really easy alternative to plastic are beeswax wraps. But wait—what if you’re vegan??? As someone who doesn’t support the use of animal products, let’s take it another notch up.
Instead, we’ll be using plant-based wax to make these convenient alternatives that can be used for snacks, as covers for bowls, and even lining your refrigerator shelves for an easy cleanup; as big as your imagination is as creative as it gets.
Stop by for this hour(ish) workshop revealing the ugly truth behind plastics and why this is a great alternative.
