etee creates beeswax and organic cotton and hemp wraps and bags. I have been using them since last summer and I love them. They are super easy to use, pliable, reusable, and when they wear out (after about 150 uses), you simply cut them up and put them in the compost.
Company: Family owned out of Toronto, Canada. They are big outdoor people and kept running into plastic – even while kayaking. So etee was born: everything touches everything else.
They use only organic cotton and hemp blends. The dyes used are free of heavy metals and are non-toxic. They manufacture their products with little water use and recycle a good portion of what they do use. They are certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard – so they are a socially responsible company too.
The wraps and bags come in three sizes. You work with the warmth of your hands to roll and seal them. Cleaning is easy – just take a soft sponge and run cool water over them and hang to dry. Just don’t put raw meat in them and do not put in freezer. The company is now coming out with a line of satchels as well. Give them a try – ditch the plastic!
