A few years ago, we tested out this plastic wrap substitute and we never looked back. Abeego is hemp and cotton fabric that is coated with beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil, and it is the absolute best at keeping food fresh. It’s sustainable, compact and easy to clean!

KITCHEN | Helpful gadgets
Market Kitchen on Granville Island
