Reusable food wraps - We're wrap artists over here!

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by.

Wellie + Co. has been in business for almost 3 years now but it seems like just yesterday I was tinkering with beeswax, cotton and an iron trying to make a product that was pliable, viable and reliable. Mission accomplished! My beeswax wraps and bags, known as Wellies, are simple, organic and remarkably effective. Each wrap and bag is made and sewn from scratch in my Kitchener, Ontario home using a local source for beeswax. Wellies start with 100% (certified) organic cotton, then are infused with a mixture of wax, pine resin (from a sustainably run forest in Georgia, USA) and organic jojoba oil.

While I originally started making just wraps, my bags have become more popular as more and more of us make changes to remove single use plastics from our daily lives. I've been so excited by the positive feedback I've received and the growing demand! They come in 4 convenient sizes and are perfect in lunch bags and for storing produce in the fridge. They're quickly becoming a fan favourite!

This is the most fun I've ever had! It's the perfect marriage of proactive sustainability practices + entrepreneurship + connecting with community. Welcome to Wellie & Co.!

Frequently asked questions
How long will my Wellie last?

A year is about the life expectancy of our Wellies, depending on frequency of use, of course. Once the wrap no longer has tack, it can be discarded onto your compost heap.

How do I care for my Wellie?

Heat is a Wellie's enemy so rinse it with warm water (and a mild detergent if needed). Beeswax, rosin and jojoba oil all have anti bacterial properties to help keep your Wellie safe.

What can I wrap in my Wellie?

Wellies are meant to replace plastic wrap so anything that you use plastic for, can be wrapped in a Wellie. Sandwiches, cheese, fruit, cookies, crackers the list goes on. Try to avoid uncooked meats or seafood - glass containers are best for those!
