24-Year-Old Created Zero-Waste Food Packaging
It’s no secret that plastic pollution is very much a huge environmental issue. WWF’s 2016 report said that plastic production reached 396 million metric tons which is equivalent to 53 kilograms of plastic for each person on the planet. That number is only increasing. Plastic is entering the food we eat. 24-year-old Quentin from France developed a bees wrap all organic French ingredient plastic replacement. Take a look for yourself.
L’embeillage is a French-based company that replaces single-use food packaging like plastic bags or saran wrap. The company is determined to promote the zero-waste movement.
L’embeillage handcrafts their product from beeswax from the Normandy beekeeping cooperative, bio-absorbable cotton, pine resin from the Landes and organic hemp oil from Brittany.
The Miracle of Beehives
The non-toxic, reusable and biodegradable packaging can be washed, hence it has a life-span of about one year.
Beeswax makes the packaging waterproof and breathable and has antibacterial and preservative properties that contribute to less food waste.
