As part of the Visual Dialogues XIII, “Devoured”, artist Annie Hsiao-Wen Wang ran a workshop on DIY beeswax wraps as part of the initiative to reduce plastic use.
Beeswax wraps are a natural alternative to plastic wrap for food storage. Made from 100% cotton , beeswax and coconut oil, these wraps are reusable for up to 1 year with proper care. Using these reusable bees wax wraps saves space in your fridge and reduces your need to use disposable plastic bags and containers. So say goodbye to yucky plastics in contact with your food! Beeswax are also edible so you can feel safe wrapping your food in it. If you need to dispose of them, no problem because they are 100% biodegradable and can be composted or used as kindling for your fireplace.
Beeswax wraps are naturally anti-bacterial and can be easily cleaned for continued use.
Help us reduce plastic waste by making naturally organic products and make sure your food is fresh and safe.
This workshop was run in conjunction with One Brown Planet. Artist Annie Hsiao-Wen Wang created the Poly, the World’s Largest Plastic Crochet Turtle, to raise awareness for the worldwide epidemic of single use plastic and the impact it is having on the environment.
Meet Poly at the Monga Longshan Cultural and Creative B2 from Jan-June 2017 (Longshan Temple MRT Station Level B2).
