Beeswax Wrap Project
Posted: July 21, 2019

In their ongoing creation care work, members of Bethany Beach Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a Green Chalice congregation in Bethany Beach, DE, gathered at one church member's house to make Beeswax Wraps. Beeswax Wraps are an environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic wrap and aluminum foil for covering dishes or wrapping food. They are made of 100% cotton cloth, organic beeswax, food-grade pine resin, and jojoba oil. The nine participants enjoyed learning how to make the wraps and completed over 180 in various sizes. The process involves grating the beeswax, sprinkling it along with pine resin and jojoba oil on pieces of fabric, then ironing the mixture between parchment paper until the wax melts.

The wraps were sold at an Arts and Crafts show, and the profits were given to local community-service organizations.
