Composting your wraps
Beeswax food wrap is easy to compost in a domestic environment. Simply bury the used wax food wraps in your garden or home composting bin and they will naturally decompose and biodegrade. The rate of composting varies depending on how much wax is left on the wrap, and the composting environment.
Alternatively, they can be recycled: cut them into strips and they make handy twist ties or use them wrapped around a piece of kindling as a natural fire lighter. They can also be cut into smaller squares to be used as 'lid grips'.
Beeswax is inert i.e. it is chemically inactive and has no effect on animals or humans.
