Our Story

Honeywrap Sustainability

 

Honeywrap is inspired by nature and a passion for reducing the amount of single use plastic on the planet, to make a better word for the next generation.   Our Honeywrap beeswax wraps are reusable, environmentally friendly, sustainable, recyclable and offer a natural alternative to plastic food wrap. Each beeswax wrap is made in New Zealand from certified organic cotton and natural ingredients.

Honeywrap brand values are conservation, communities and commerce should work together to create a sustainable, healthier world. Which is why Honeywrap is a member of the Sustainable Business Network and is dedicated to doing business sustainably in a way that respects our air, land, water, environment to work towards Zero Waste and a Circular Economy

In addition, Honeywrap is working towards being a Certified B Corporation which is verification of social and environmental performance, and accountability to balance profit and purpose for a more sustainable economy.

As a sustainable business, we provide solutions to meet demand for sustainable products that won’t end up in the landfill.  Currently New Zealanders send 60 kgs of plastics per person to landfill every year. The New Zealand Government has pledged to phase out many single use plastics by 2025.

Each Honeywrap is made from natural, reusable materials and saves the equivalent of 75 metres of plastic wrap use over its lifetime. To date Honeywrap customers have saved over 26 million metres of plastic wrap ending up in landfill, waterways and our oceans.

The Sustainable Business Network as conducted a survey that shows 96% of people want products to be made from materials that could be reused, repaired, or recycled.  Honeywrap provides other sustainable plastic free solutions that can be reused such as organic cotton produce bags, stainless steel drink bottles, straws and pegs. 

To eliminate manufacturing waste Honeywrap Firestarters are made from off-cuts from our production run of beeswax wraps which means our wraps are waste free.  

In the spirit of a better sustainable way of doing business all Honeywrap products are packaged in recyclable cardboard packaging, a natural renewable material, from sustainable forests.

We give back by supporting New Zealand artists to create our beautiful authentic designs.  In addition, we donate funds and give back to charities and organisations on social and environmental projects such as Project Jonah, Forest & Bird and Save the Kiwi to raise funds and awareness for the work they do.

 


Wendy the owner of Honeywrap genuinely believes sustainability, health and well being are important part of business and life. As a seventh generation New Zealand food producer, she is passionate about the preservation of the environment and using natural, sustainable products and adopting a business model that promotes zero waste and a circular economy.

 

 

 

Gots Certified

 

Organic cotton is made without pesticides therefore it is better for the environment, the farmers and eventually our own health as our skin is not exposed to the harmful chemicals used in the manufacturing process of traditional cotton.  It is a non-negotiable for us that all our wraps are made with GOTs Certified organic cotton fabric.
