Bee’s Wrap is a reusable, natural alternative to single-use plastic wrap, bags, and aluminum foil. From storing food in the kitchen to packing sandwiches and snacks on the go, Bee’s Wrap provides a sustainable way to keep food fresh.
“Bee’s Wrap is handmade in Vermont with organic cotton, beeswax, organic plant oil, and tree resin. Offering a durable yet flexible plastic wrap alternative Bee’s Wrap can be used again and again for an entire year or more. Once the wraps reach the end of their useful life they can be composted or used as a natural fire starter avoiding the contribution of plastic waste to landfills or oceans. “
Runamok is a family-owned, Vermont based company that started with a foundation of premium, organic maple syrup and has expanded to an array of maple and honey-based products.
“Honey is a wild harvested product. As it is with sugaring, every season is entirely unique and the production is only possible with hours of hard work. Honeybees play a crucial role in our food systems and are increasingly threatened from loss of habitat and the use of pesticides. Like with our sugarbushes, we’re focusing on how our business can have a positive impact on the local ecology as much as the end consumer. The way we see it, both maple and honey are products that work for a better environment and not against it.”
V Smiley Preserves makes tiny-batch honey-sweetened jams, marmalades, and conserves made in Bristol, Vermont at Minifactory, a cafe, bar and jam manufactory. V Smiley forges relationships with other local growers and, along with her partner, cultivates the fresh, juicy produce that makes her preserves.
“I make jam with honey because I love its taste, but for preserves it’s not the classical choice. Honey is a powerful preservative and sweetener that comes from nearby and is intrinsically linked to the fruit-growing process. Conceptually, I like that as a pollinator the honeybee provides everything we need to make fruit preserves.”
