Eveline Lemieux (Emballages Bee Sustainable Food Wrap)

Eveline Lemieux (Emballages Bee Sustainable Food Wrap)

Let me indtroduce myself: my background is in environmental studies and I have taught environment-related courses at La Cite College and University of Ottawa. I am also a consultant as a former member of the Ottawa Food policy Council and a presentor for Scientist in School. I started making foodwraps last summer (2017) and believe that by minimizing our use of plastic we can help change the world. The wraps can be used for up to one year and are hand-crafted in Ottawa. Beeswax has natural antibacterial properties. And, unlike plastic wrap, which completely seals food, beeswax wrap breathes and can be formed by the warmth of your hand. They are also made of recycled cotton.
