Etee stands for ‘Everything Touches Everything Else.’ And, we can all agree that’s a true statement.
I tried Etee Food Wraps because a friend posted them on Facebook (sharing is caring) and I thought they looked like a good alternative to storing food in my fridge. In my pre-eco-friendly life, I used to place almost every leftover I had in sticky plastic wrap. It was easy and I am lazy. As soon as I saw these I was relieved that an easy, biodegradable wrap that caters to my lazy side—let alone in a variety of fun colors—existed!
Though their wraps may look like paper, they’re actually a muslin/wax wrap that activates when you squish the into a ball and knead them. After you activate, you can wrap it around a bowl, an avocado, a sandwich, etc., and it will stick to itself like Saran Wrap.
Here’s a video of me using it, just so you can see what it’s like:
According to their website, Etee wraps form a protective, breathable and antimicrobial seal over just about any perishable – all without the use of plastic. And best of all:
THEY ARE REUSABLE. THEY ARE BIODEGRADABLE. THEY ARE PLASTIC FREE.
I have used these to cover a few different bowls of leftovers, avocados, sandwiches, and a plate of brownies (don’t judge!). They were super easy to use—just squish into a ball like you’re kneading dough to activate—then stick to itself. When you’re done using it, simply wash it with soap and water, then hang it to dry.
These can last between 6 months and a year, depending how often you use them and what you use them for. You can put them in the freezer, but no longer than 30 days, and if you want to microwave them, DON’T.
Take some time to browse through their website. I purchased a 3-pack just to see what they’re like. But they have everything from wraps and snack bags to cutlery sets and bamboo straws.
