Today, we bring you a giveaway from SouleMama Sponsor, Bee's Wrap. In Sarah's words:
"Bee's Wrap is a reusable beeswax and cloth alternative to plastic wrap. Use the warmth of your hands to mold the Bee's Wrap to create a seal around the top of a bowl, half of a lemon, a crusty loaf of bread, wrap cheese or a sandwich, when cool the wrap stiffens holding its shape and seal. Rinse with cool water and use again and again.
Visit our Facebook page to see what is happening at Bee's Wrap this week."
SouleMama: Tell us about the beginnings of your business.
Sarah: Good food has always been central to our home life here in Vermont. We
grow and preserve most of our vegetables, we milk goats, raise sheep,
pigs and chickens. Our family life revolves around the garden and
kitchen. But all of this food needed to be kept fresh and growing
concerns about our environment and the health safety of plastic, made
plastic no longer a viable option for food storage. As a stay at home
mother of three I was also interested in bringing in additional income
while staying home and available to my children.
This is where Bee’s Wrap enters. Enchanted with all the shades of muslin, old flour sack, scraps of trimmings, lace, yarn, and given some invaluable suggestions from family and friends, I found that by infusing it all with beeswax my creations became functional! The combination of fabric infused with beeswax made for the perfect alternative to plastic for food storage. Bee’s Wrap evolved into a basic food storage product that was easy to clean and use, that we could make available to many people, not just our own households.
SouleMama: What's your favorite part of your job? the most challenging?
Sarah: I love that I can work with a couple of really great women and be at home with my children. We have set up a workshop connected to the house, so I am within easy access of the family, but can also get away to get work done when the need arises. Integrating home and work feels natural to me and allows my children to see "Mama" in other roles. Life is work and work can be incredibly rewarding and enjoyable and they are able to see that every day. That said, running a business and a household at times can feel like overload. There are days when it just doesn't seem possible to get through the next hour, let alone check off anything on my list, but we always seem to pull through and are rewarded with a harmonious day when I just can't believe it can be this good.
