rr header


Welcome to the Relish Reusable Giveaway Hop hosted by Measuring Flower and Eco Crazy Mom! I have teamed up with a group of other green bloggers to bring you a bunch of fun, eco-friendly, and reusable giveaways worth a minimum of $25 each. So, after you've entered our awesome giveaway below, be sure to "hop" on to the next blog to enter their giveaway as well. You can find a list linking to all the other blogs towards the bottom of this post. Don't forget to enter the event's big grand grand prizes, including $200 of reusable products donated by Reuseit.com!

I am so excited to share with you a totally new company to me! Abeego

A revolutionary way to wrap up your left overs, your half eaten fruits, and cover your food dishes.. without using plastic wrap or tin foil! Reusable, food storage flats made from help, cotton, beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil. Natural, and handcrafted in Canada. I HATE throwing out plastic wrap after we unwrap a product we wanted to preserve in the fridge. It is not recyclable, and it is so harmful to our environment, and especially to any animals that may get into it.
At room temperature you can easily mold the Abeego around the food you want to preserve. When it is cold it holds it's form and becomes less malleable.

Beautiful photos Toni sent over of ways to use the Abeego flats!




My pictures won't do justice to this product like the ones above. They are so amazing! And I love the color coded thread that runs through them so you know if you are grabbing, a small, medium or large flat.


Using Abeego Flats




Taking care of your Abeego will allow it to last for over a year! I bet you never reused plastic wrap for that long. Simply handwash in cold water with eco friendly dish soap. These are not suitable for the microwave or dishwasher. Another great thing is that they are fluid resistant, so when you wrap the top of the spaghetti sauce bowl, and someone tips it, it won't leak out all over like it would with other food wraps. The Abeego may take on some of the colors of foods like tomato products, but the efficiency will be the same.


They even utilize all of their waste to make abeebits! Almost like twist ties, these have a ton of uses!

Enter to win 4 sets of Abeego Flats! Use some for yourself and give some to a friend. You will want to share this product for sure!
US and Canada!!
Ends April 15th

  10. Their mobile site does not have care tips. They really need a website that allows me to go to the desktop version from my iPad. I am not a fan of being forced to view the mobile site.

    I love that I can compost the wrap when its useful life is over.

  11. so easy - just wash in cool water! I so want these!

  12. These are cool, would save alot of money not using plastic wrap and that they are usable for many different uses from your review "Hand-wash Abeego in COLD eco-friendly dish soap In COLD water the beeswax coating will be stiff, providing a stable surface to clean. "Abeego washes like a plate, not a piece of fabric. It can handle a light scrub with a gentle dish cloth or sponge......"

    Place over a dish rack" to air dry or towel dry Abeego for immediate use. Do not wring."

  23. I like the "half cut," forming Abeego around the cut side of your avocado. I hate putting saran wrap directly on my avocados... i feel like I'm adding so many nasty chemicals!

    ReplyDelete
  24. We would use the cheese tips! I always freshly shred our cheese but never use a full block so the remains usually end up in a plastic bag. Katy C. dragon _ at _ heart 04 @ hotmail . com
