Haven’t you heard? Cling wrap is out. LilyBee Wrap reusable beeswax wraps are in.
Born “from a desire to create an easy, eco-friendly food wrap option that worked well without sacrificing beauty,” New Zealand-based brand LilyBee Wrap is providing conscious consumers with plastic-free food wraps as an alternative to single use conventional plastic wraps.
Once solely a little pot in a tiny kitchen, LilyBee Wrap has grown into a thriving woman owned and operated eco business with 15 employees and large scale operation. As a certified B Corporation, the team at LilyBee Wrap has a completely clear supply chain, and they hold ethics and sustainability at the core of their operations.
The beeswax wraps are hand-crafted in New Zealand with the highest quality ingredients, locally and sustainably sourced beeswax, organic coconut oil and tree resin, and although some of the eco products are not made in New Zealand such as the cloth produce bags, these too are made with high quality materials. The wraps (which we have tried, tested, and totally fallen in love with) are suitable to wrap everything from sandwiches, half avos and tuna cans, and will massively reduce your own personal environmental footprint.
Now, let’s talk about ethics. LilyBee Wrap is a Living Wage Accredited employer, which essentially means that their whole team is paid a living wage. What’s more is this company not only ensures that community remains at the heart of the business, but also allows for a flexible working schedule for the mothers amongst them. Now that’s some gooood business.
The LilyBee Wrap team has literally thought of everything. With any leftover offcuts, the LilyBee natural fire starters are made, which further shows LilyBee Wraps’ commitment to environmental responsibility. As for the packaging, all of it is PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified, and both their fabric and printing is GOTS certified as well.
Oh, and just in case you reached your “couldn’t love them any more” quota, LilyBee regularly gives back when they can, uses Tree Time app to plant trees and track their carbon offsetting, and lends on Kiva, a micro-loaning app with intention.
A word on progress and impact: so far, LilyBee Wrap has saved 55 million metres of single use plastic from entering our precious environment (!!!), and they also have an education programme in a few New Zealand schools that is designed to inspire and educate the next generation. Is there anything this epic company can’t do? We don’t think so.
If you hate plastic just as much as we do, and you’ve been on the hunt for some plastic-free alternatives, look no further than LilyBee Wrap. Trust us on this one.

LilyBee Wrap was born from a desire to create an easy, eco-friendly food wrap option that both worked well, without sacrificing beauty. We hate using plastic (especially when it’s only for single use) so we started looking for alternatives.

All of our packaging is PEFC (Sustainable Forestry) certified, and our fabric and printing is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

LilyBee Wrap is a woman owned and operated business, and as we have grown from a little pot in a small kitchen to a large scale operation with 8 employees, community has remained at the heart of the business with team lunches, eco culture and flexible hours to allow mothers to work around their family life.

Zero Waste is a primary concern for LilyBee Wrap, we even created products to combat the little waste we did have. A few years ago we noticed how many fabric off cuts we were creating, from here our LilyBee natural fire starters aka bee bombs were born. Bee Bombs are a natural fire starter, made from the same ingredients as our wraps, organic cotton, bees wax, oil and resin.
LilyBee regularly give back where we can. We regularly micro lend on kiva, this platform allows us to lend money again and again to help start up businesses all over the world. We also purchases trees from Tree Time app, a non profit start up, we plant trees and can track our carbon off set.
We have a clear supply chain, as we are B Corp certified, it is necessary.
