When “Something Funky in the Fridge” Helps the Planet

“Something funky in the fridge” sounds like mouldy food, doesn’t it? In this case, it’s quite the opposite … this is a groovy way to do food preserving!

If we’ve met in person lately, you’ll have noticed I’m talking incessantly a lot about Wrappa Bees Reusable Wax Food Wraps. I’ve been growing more and more unhappy about using environmentally-devastating-but-so-damn-handy cling film, and I’m excited to know about a viable, pretty alternative for food storage. Reusable wax food wraps are a fab way to use less plastic while keeping our fridges festive.

Cheryl and I and our cat-loving colluder Juanita Tortilla (who I interviewed here) made friends a couple of months ago and thought it would be cool to collaborate on an exclusive South Australian Artist range of waxed wraps.

Our Fab(ulous) Collab(oration)!

My pattern design is printed onto a cotton fabric and hand crafted into wraps by Cheryl.

There’s a hearts / gingham-inspired one (with cheese, bottom right) and sunshine-y honey yellow one with cute flowers and little stars, and the big flower pattern with all the colours on a navy background.

The yellow is a hat tip to bees and honey. Blue is a great contrast for food – as indeed it is when painting a still life – because there aren’t many blue foods (except quondong jelly and blueberries) so your fresh produce will always look gorgeous.

Oh. So will cookies. :)
