I’m always looking for ways to reduce my plastic consumption, especially in the kitchen and I’m thrilled to say that I’ve found a new wonderful alternative. Plastic wrap to wrap up pastry or cookie dough while it chills in the fridge is probably my most hated plastic item I use but haven’t found a viable alternative… until now.

Abeego is natural, reusable, eco-conscious food packaging created using hemp/cotton fabric infused with a blend of beeswax and plant extracts. The fluid-resistant coating keeps food fresh and is easy to clean.”

This new packaging smells so good!

I bought the triangle pocket for snacks and the flats to cover plates or bowls. I’m hoping the flats will also work for well for wrapping dough that needs to chill in the fridge but may end up buying a rectangle wrap if it doesn’t.

It holds a remarkable amount

“Simply hand wash Abeego in COLD, soapy water and enjoy the long life of this plastic free, durable product. Choose from our three styles, the Abeego Wrap, the Abeego Snack and the Abeego Flats.”

I’m so excited I had to share!

    YAY!!! plastic wrap has also indeed been a guilty part of my pantry, so THANK YOU for this!!!

    These look great. I have been on the hunt for an alternative. I am right there with you… hate using the plastic wrap. Thanks for sharing!

    Aren’t they the coolest company? I used to work for the Moss St Market in Victoria and they had a table there every weekend. Every time I saw them I just thought it was the best way to store food.

  5. Annie says:

    Yes, another guilty user of plastic wrap here! These look great. I think I’ll have to try them. I am interested to see how they hold up over time.

  6. Lynn says:

    Yes! Finally! Yay! I stopped using plastic wrap a few years ago and it’s a hassle trying to find other ways. These look great.

    I’ve been lurking here for a while since my friend Natalie turned me on to your blog. I’ve met you a few times (you gave me a desk) and I keep meaning to tell you how much I love your recipes, and what a good eye for photography you have, but shyness always gets the better of me and so far I haven’t said it. So there! I said it now! :)

    Thanks for the tip. I am definitely feeling the plastic wrap guilt here, too. I have been meaning to make some cloth snack sacks for awhile, too. Now that summer is waning, perhaps I’ll have some indoor time to do so.

    Sounds fab and looks really beautiful… Thanks for sharing your discovery Annie!

    This is very interesting!
    I hope I can find some here in France!

    Oh, I forgot to ask, Annie (or anyone else who may know), do you think you could use the big sheet for rising bread dough? (maybe with an elastic around it?)

  11. Annie says:

    I love that we all have similar interests and are looking for ways to keep things natural!

    Lynn- I’m glad you said Hello! Sometimes I assume people don’t remember me and I’m not always brave enough to reintroduce myself!

    G- The biggest sheet is 30cm square. I’d think it’d be too small for an extra large bowl. I usually just use a tea towel over my rising bread. I use plastic wrap over my rising tortillas though and I’m sure this will fit directly over the dough when it’s in a bowl.

    This is GREAT. I hate plastic wrap as well and rarely use it…but sometimes…! I’ll have to look for this. Thank you. xo

  13. Hello! Thank you so much for sharing Abeego with your readers. We are honored that you believe in what we do and are willing to spread the word. Many thanks and I must say, beautiful photos!

    Oh, I’ve been looking for something like this! How clever, thanks for sharing.
    And along the lines of Lynn’s post.. I’ve been meaning to introduce myself as I looove your recipes (we eat mainly vegan now thanks to your recipes) and I discovered you through paxye’s blog. I was thrilled to learn you spent a few years in my city, and my neighbourhood in fact!

    I have seen these in the stores, and am now glad to have a review on them! I may very well try them out next time I find them!
