    Beeswax wrap in the fridge | Keep Food Alive with Abeego as a food rotation tool


    Food rotation? We’ve got a wrap for that! Manage your food storage in order to consume it before it spoils using Abeego.

    We’re often asked how much Abeego beeswax wraps does a household need. The answer is “just enough”. Sometimes the cost of beeswax wraps is a barrier because we’ve been trained to think we need reams of food wrap. Abeego makes endless rolls of food wrap obsolete.

    Armed with “just enough” Abeego for your family, you’ll save food from spoilage.

    Does this sound familiar? Cook meal, wrap leftovers, put in the fridge. Slice an onion, wrap remaining half, put in the fridge. Cut a lemon, wrap the rest, put in the fridge. Things keep going in. Suddenly the fridge is full. Time to clean it out! How much ends in the compost? The clutter, the mess, the waste.

    This is where you enter—the kitchen hero—with your trusty Abeego sidekick!

    When you keep “just enough” Abeego on hand for your family, you know that when you run out of food wraps it’s time to dig into your fridge and use something up. This is simple, easy, food rotation with Abeego! Fresh, clean, organized. Victory is yours!

    Stir-frys, fridge pickles, curries, and soups are easy ways to use up food. Get creative with three-ingredient pizza, sandwich hacks, and kale root-to-stem pesto.

    Abeego beeswax wraps also keep your food alive for longer than ever expected compared to other food wrap methods. How much cilantro have you composted in your lifetime? Save your cilantro in your Abeego and you’ll still have it for next Taco Tuesday!


    How much is “just enough”?

    We recommend starting with a Variety Wrap set—with one small, medium and large wrap—along with the Giant Wrap, to have one of each size. Live with this for a while, gage your needs and add to your collection if needed. If you find you’re packing lots of sandwiches for the family, you’ll need more Large Wraps, for example.

    Remember, Abeego offers free shipping so it’s easy to order to your needs.


    Different beeswax wrap wrapping techniques to Keep Food Alive | Abeego


    Keep on top of what’s in your fridge with different wrap techniques. Abeego is opaque to protect food from light, like a peel.

    We wrap similarly shaped foods in different ways for at-a-glance food identification. For example, wrap your lemons with a squeeze and your limes with a twist on the ends like a bonbon.

    If you’ve forgotten what’s in a wrap, it’s a probably time to use it.

    Some root vegetables can live a long time in the crisper without Abeego, such as rutabaga and winter squashes. Surrounded by other Abeego-packaged items can also act as a level of protection, wrapping naked roots without actually wrapping them.


    Take your food rotation system one-step further and meal prep like a boss with Abeego as your executive assistant.

    Need half a vegetable for today’s menu? Instead of storing the other half, cut the entire vegetable and keep the extras in Abeego to save yourself time tomorrow.

    If you’re ready to go next level, Huckle and Goose can help with thoughtful, seasonal weekly meal planning so you know exactly what you need before heading to the market.

    Food rotation is practiced today by most commercial kitchens, to ensure safe food and eliminate food waste. A first-in-first-out (FIFO) system helps the oldest food to get eaten first.

    1. Grocery shop in reverse: before you buy more, check your pantry and fridge and plan meals around what you already have.
    2. In your fridge and crisper, place newly purchased produce to the back and move older items to the front.
    3. Wrap “like” items together, especially food known to last longer or shorter. For example, keep herbs together, double wrapped with an Abeego barrier.
    4. Use Abeego! It acts like a second skin to protect and breathe to extend the life of your food so it stays alive longer and fresher than ever imagined.


    Use Abeego as a food rotation tool and bring mindfulness into your kitchen like a kitchen Zen master. Abeego gives you the power to eliminate food waste in your own home. Save your food and save time and money. Purposeful, simple, organized living with Abeego. 



    Abeego is the original reusable beeswax food wrap. Like food’s own peel, skin and rind, Abeego breathes and protects, extending the life of fresh food so you can enjoy it to the very last bite.
