Goodbye plastic, Back to nature
So much of our food comes from nature, so why would we use artificial plastic to preserve it?
Our natural blend of fabric coated with sustainably sourced beeswax can help do away with plastic wrap.
Eliminating plastic waste and changing food storage habits can happen one day at a time.
By using BEENAT, you are one step closer to reducing plastic waste forever.
WHY ABANDON PLASTIC?
The excessive use of plastics in our homes generates a progressive increase in pollution, destroyed ecosystems, infertile lands, extinction of species, and the proliferation of the components of this type of plastic, Polypropylene, (derived from petroleum ) and Ethylene Polymerization.
In Chile we produce 456 kilos of garbage per person per year -1.08 kilos per day- of which 11% is plastic waste.
Studies show that every year 8 million tons of plastic reach the Pacific Ocean and it is estimated that by 2050, for every ton of fish in the ocean, there will also be one ton of plastic.
Another reason is because it can cause serious diseases such as cancer among others. To give you an idea, plastic releases more than 130 toxic substances.
KEEPS FOOD FRESH
Like a shell or crust, BEENAT protects and allows food to breathe. It protects them from air, light and humidity, creating the perfect environment to extend the shelf life of food.
SIMPLE AND PLASTIC-FREE
Each ingredient comes from the earth. BEENAT is easy to use when you need it and disappears without a trace.
END OF LIFE
When the day comes, BEENAT is 100% compostable. Better yet, cut it into strips and reuse it as a fire starter or garden ties.
