About Us

My name is Ben Milston and I was born in Sydney, Australia. I moved to Israel in 2013 to connect with the country and its people.


On one of my family visits back to Australia with my partner Sarah, we were introduced to these Beeswax Food Wraps in the local artist market. We were amazed by the simplicity and effectiveness to be able to reduce our plastic consumption.

Since that day, there was no going back.


On our return to Israel, our friends and family here were also impressed by the great product we had stumbled upon.

We have been doing our best to live an eco-friendly life for many years and these wraps have made it so much easier. We have completely removed cling film and plastic sandwich bags from our kitchen, our fridge is now full of color, and our fruit and vegetables now stay fresh for longer.


Each time we wrap our food we feel pride in knowing we're doing our bit for the planet.


We feel that we can contribute to Israel's journey towards a greener future

- and thus Bee Green was born.

Why Not Vegan Wraps?

Some have raised the issue of using beeswax as a substitute for plastic as unfriendly and cruel to bees.

 

It is important for us to note that this issue is very close to our hearts and when making our decision to sell these beeswax wraps, it was after strong consideration of the alternatives, including vegan wraps.

 

Vegan wraps consist of either soybean or candelilla wax, which also has many drawbacks on the environment. To grow soybeans in mass quantities, huge areas of deforestation occur. This greatly impacts the homes and lives of many different species of animals. Furthermore, the candelilla plant is considered endangered and many harmful chemicals are produced during the process of candelilla wax.

 

Alternatively, our beeswax is harvested from a sustainable source. A source that needs to keep their bees alive and healthy in order for them to produce good quality beeswax. Also due to the natural anti-bacterial properties found in beeswax, our wraps help keep food fresh for longer, reducing food waste.

 

While soybean and candelilla can also be harvested from sustainable sources, this greatly increases their price, making it less affordable to the general population, thus keeping more people using plastic.

And so we decided on beeswax wraps for one of our ways to limit our carbon footprint. We hope this product brings you joy and comfort in knowing you too can play a role in making this world a better and greener place.
