About Hannah's Happy Wrap
on average, one person will use over 100m of single-use plastic wrap every year, which goes straight to landfill. Every pack of happy wrap sold prevents this - saving the planet one pack at a time!

About Hannah's Happy Wrap
Hannah's Happy Wrap are a 100% natural alternative to plastics in the fridge and the lunchbox. They're perfect for wrapping all kinds of cut vegetables, fruit, cheese, cakes, sandwiches and covering bowls of leftovers in the fridge. All of my wraps are lovingly hand cut, hand waxed and packaged in Glenreagh (Orara Valley, Northern NSW).
You can find me and my Happy Wrap at the local markets around the Coffs Harbour region, online through the Happy Wrap store, or at a variety of stockists (see the Find Us tab above).
How to use Happy Wrap
Use Happy Wrap just as you would use plastic wrap. Perfect for wrapping fruit and vegetables or covering bowls in the fridge.
Use your hands to mould the wrap, holding for 3-4 seconds to allow the warmth from your hands to soften the beeswax, creating a seal.
As the wraps are made from beeswax, they cannot be used on hot foods or in the microwave.
What are they made from?
My wraps are made from local beeswax, jojoba oil and 100% pure cotton. Beeswax is naturally antibacterial, helping to keep your food nice and fresh. The majority of the cotton used is 100% organic with eco-responsible low impact dyes. Produced on mills that are committed to ethical and responsible conduct.
CLEANING & Storage
As the wraps are made from beeswax, hot water cannot be used to clean them. Keeping this in mind, it’s not recommended to use them for covering meat. Clean the wraps in the same way you would clean a placemat. Use cold water and a cloth. A mild soap can be used if needed. Pat dry with a tea towel and then allow the wraps to air dry naturally. Make sure your wraps are 100% dry before storing them flat in a drawer.
Store your wraps away from any heat sources like ovens, microwaves or against the side of a fridge.
Give your wraps a freshen up
After a few months of continual use, you can freshen up your wraps by putting them in the oven on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Set the oven to 140-150 degrees celsius and heat your wraps for 5 minutes. Carefully pick the wrap up and allow to air dry for approximately 40 seconds. This will straighten out any creases or folds in your wrap and keep them looking their best.
Eventually, when your wraps are old and have served you well... they can be buried in the garden or placed in your compost heap, where they'll decompose back into the earth.
