Together with the rise of people’s awareness about sustainability is the surge of shops and sellers making eco-friendly alternatives accessible. One of these retailers is Daniela Calumba. Aside from being a jewelry designer, she’s known for her vegan body care products like charcoal-infused bamboo toothbrushes, deodorant creams, and healing balms, as well as beeswax wraps.

Made from 100 percent local cotton and pure beeswax, these reusable wraps are the sustainable substitutes to single-use plastics, like cling wrap, aluminum foil, and other items used for packing and storing food. The wax-coated cloth can be used multiple times up to a year—just wash with soap and water. It is also biodegradable.

Simply use your hands’ warmth to mold the beeswax wraps around bowls and jars of food or snacks. The cloth comes in different screen-printed designs featuring marine life like whale sharks, eagle rays, turtles, and humpback whales.
