Our Good Cause
The Neonatal Trust Auckland
In 2016 our daughter was born very early and subsequently spent the first few months of her life in hospital. As parents this was one of the toughest times of our lives. The Neonatal Trust Auckland based in Auckland Hospital was there for us as a parents support network. They put on small events such as afternoon teas and 5 minute massages if we wanted a short break from our incubator-side positions. They offer many services to parents including a recently introduced coffee group where parents and babies can go to talk through their trauma. Every dollar counts that's why we're committed to donating $1 from every pack sold to this incredibly supportive organisation.
Ways to use them
Use the wraps as a lid to mold over bowls, cups, containers, cans and more.
The wrap will stick to itself when you use your hands to mold around items of food.
A wonderful and unique way to wrap a small gift. No sticky tape required.

What people are saying
“I find them great for leftovers, keeps them fresh and ready for lunch the next day. I also use them to wrap my cheese in, cover my homemade pate and wrap my Vogel bread to keep it fresh. I also found yesterday that they keep half and avocado beautifully fresh. Love these wraps”.
"I love these wraps for the kids’ lunchboxes! Great for keeping sandwiches fresh. They are really easy to use and last for ages."
“Loving these beautiful colourful wraps. Super easy to use instead of cling wrap in all ways, to cover plates/unfinished meals, wrap whole foods (peeled carrot/apple etc.) or sandwiches. Hubby finds them easy to wash too”.
"I love using Wraps for Good because not only am I using no plastic which is a win for the environment, but knowing that a portion of every sale goes towards a good cause is a win for everyone. Wraps For Good are great!"
Wraps for Good was born very organically out of a strong desire to help. Help our planet, help people choose a reusable, environmentally-friendly product and also support really heart-warming causes in our community. Our aim is to provide an excellent alternative to plastic wrap that is affordable and continue to give inspiration on the different ways to use them.
Our handmade beeswax wraps are made from 100% cotton and all natural beeswax.
We strive to offer really high quality wraps in designs you'll love and three different sizes, giving you choice when choosing what works for your lifestyle. We often change our fabric patterns depending on supply and season.
How do they work?
Beeswax wraps are used just like cling film, but better because they are reusable. Use your hands to mold the wrap around your food or dish. The warmth of your hands will allow the wax to soften slightly giving it a good stick. Note when it's a bit cooler in the air it may take a little longer to seal.
What's used to make the wraps?
We use 100% cotton and all natural beeswax. Our beeswax composition is a milder smell than most. Our research shows many people don't like to residue left on their food from the wax so we've brought the honey smell down a notch.
What sizes do you have?
We hand make 3 different sized beeswax wraps
Our sizes are:
Small - 22cm x 22cm
Medium - 22cm x 32cm
Large - 32cm x 32cm
As we hand make all our wraps there may be slight variations to the sizing above.
How long will they last for?
Beeswax wraps typically have a lifespan of up to 6 months, sometimes longer. It all depends on how you use and look after the wraps.
Is there anything I can't use them with?
Avoid using your wraps to cover meat and we don't recommend putting them in the freezer.
How do I wash them?
Hand wash with cold water or a gentle wipe down should be sufficient. A small amount of planet-friendly detergent is fine.
Do not put them in the dishwasher, washing machine or microwave and do not expose to direct sunlight for too long.
Will they look as pretty as when I bought them?
Almost. When you start to use your wraps there will be fold lines. This will not affect the quality it's just natural for them to do this. If you find the wax cracking due to storing in the fridge you can use your hands to warm the wax again or pop it on some baking paper on a tray in the oven very quickly to re-spread the wax. Always be careful when handling hot wax.
Can I re-wax my wraps?
When your wraps start to lose their stick it might be time for some new ones. You can re-wax your wraps if you're able to get hold of some beeswax. Pop to your local op-shop and grab an old baking tray as it could get messy. Slowly let the wax melt onto the fabric and pull out gently. There are many great YouTube videos on how to do this.
Please always be careful when dealing with hot wax.
