Beeswax Wraps & Beezy Wrap®
Our Journey to Plastic Free
Beezy Wrap® is a Canadian, Woman owned business dedicated to the reduction of plastic use and protection of our environment.
Founder and CEO, Sandra Mac Donald, has been nominated in 2022 and 2023 for the Annual RBC Canadian Women Entrpreneur Awards.
“With a love for nature and the environment, I take great pride in making the right choices to reduce my carbon footprint. This passion has led me to develop, manufacture and sell Zero Plastic, Eco Friendly, All Natural body and home care products. All products are made with a Zero Waste Philosophy in mind.”
“Always taking our plastic “to the curb” to be recycled we felt we were doing “our part”.
The “A-HA” moment came in 2017 when China announced it would no longer take plastic film waste from Canada. This was something that had never occurred to me: what happens when your plastic leaves the curb?!
After some research I decided we would no longer contribute to this growing problem for our environment.
The fun began: experimenting to make reusable beeswax bee wraps!”
Sandra developed her own unique and wonderful recipe which is now used to create Beezy Wrap® beeswax food wraps using 100% cotton, local beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. Beeswax is sourced from a local beekeeper, organic jojoba oil, Canadian sourced fabrics and sustainably harvested tree resin are used to create these wonderful wraps.
Beezy Wrap® food wraps were gifted to family and friends for “kitchen testing”. Everyone loved using beeswax wraps and the demand for more led to the creation of a business.
Beezy Wrap® was started from a desire to no longer use “single use” plastic.
“We take great pride in our Zero Waste Production Philosophy: In running our business, it’s important to us that we produce as little waste as possible.We make a use for everything we process!”
The passion “to do better” has led me to develop, manufacture and sell Zero Plastic, Eco Friendly, All Natural body and home care products. All products are made with a Zero Waste Philosophy in mind.
Proudly Canadian, Beezy Wrap® has garnered orders and interest for beeswax wraps coming from U.S., UK., Iceland, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, Japan and Australia.

The Origin Of The Beeswax Wrap… and Beezy Wrap®
Historically, beeswax was used for preserving by the Egyptians. Then in the 1900’s beeswax infused cloth was used for food storage over jars and containers.
I have taken this concept and made it my own. There are many diy recipes for making beeswax wraps but I decided to formulate my own unique recipe to provide one of the BEST handmade beeswax wraps in the world. Using 100% cotton or organic cotton, local beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and pine tree resin… Beezy Wrap® had begun.
In our humble beginning our handmade beeswax wraps were for personal use and many were gifted to family and friends for “kitchen testing”. The requests for more came fast and furious, leading to a growing business! The use of beeswax wraps is a growing trend.
Our retail presence is growing at a quick pace as we are represented in many retail locations.
We each are SMALL….together we can be MIGHTY.
