or Reduce & Reuse

We don’t throw anything away!

Cloths that are not cut well will fall through our quality control for the 2/3 and Family sets, but of course we don’t just throw them away, we make them to:

  • BottleCaps, approx. 10 x 15 cm, which can be used for closing bottles, but also for e.g. avocados in cut or yoghurt cups.
  • From the left-overs of the BottleCaps again we spin our fire balls 😉! Because of the wax, this little ball can be used as spark for your campfire. One ball burns for about 5 minutes.

If you order 3 beeGoodies products in our online shop, you will currently receive 5 additional fire balls – until stocks lasts.

But we also try to reduce packaging and waste in our own household as much as possible and to use things several times, so not only Reduce but also Reuse.

What are the possibilities for Reuse?

  • Recup cups: RECUP is the Germany-wide reusable deposit system for coffee-to-go cups. Here you can find more information: The cups are partly available with city names and individual designs and at many places like gas stations etc. you can even get your coffee cheaper in them.
  • Reusable nets for weighing fruit and vegetables in the supermarket, because attention! Bags made of “bioplastics” are also not an alternative! The term “bioplastics” can mean two things: biobased, i.e. made from renewable raw materials, and/or biodegradable. In fact, not every plastic made from renewable raw materials is biodegradable. Conversely, not all biodegradable plastics are made from renewable raw materials. But even bags made of biodegradable plastic can pollute nature for longer than many people think.
  • Upcycling is also a form of reuse. On Youtube, Instagram and Pinterest there are many ideas for making new modern clothes from worn clothing with a few simple steps. Or to convert them: Socks can be used as cell phone holders while jogging. T-shirts become shopping bags, shirts perhaps gift “paper”? Tins become flower pots and much more.

We ask for your ideas!

Why don’t you try what you can implement in your life and send us more ideas for upcycling and reuse – plus pic. The most creative ideas will be published on Instagram and we will raffle off a drying rack from beeGoodies among the submissions until the end of May 2020, which you can use again and again.

In the next blog post we will take up the topic of household helpers like in grandma’s time.

Taking care of and refreshing of beeGoodies coating

beeGoodies DIY Bienenwachstuch reparieren

or iron your cloth fresh again

The handling of the beeGoodies beeswax cloths is very easy. With lukewarm water and, if necessary, some liquid soap, simply wash it off and let it dry well before you store it or use it again right away. The warm water also makes the creases disappear. Do not use too hot water, otherwise the beeswax will melt, of course.

Also citric acid, dishwasher, washing machine or microwave does not like your beeGoodies beeswax cloth. And it’s also not suitable for cutting on. With loving care your beeGoodies beeswax wraps should last a long time, at least 12 months. If that’s not the case, we will gladly send you a new beeGoodies beeswax cloth when you return your old one. […]

Beeswax cloths – THE alternative to cling film

beeGoodies Dunja stellt unsere Produktfamilie vor

for packaging and keeping food fresh

That our society produces too much plastic waste is no big secret any more. When you go shopping every day, you quickly notice that it is not so easy to avoid plastic packaging completely. The range of products offered in the supermarket, even at organic retailers, makes it difficult not to reach for one or the other packaged food despite the fresh vegetable, cheese and sausage counter.

And let’s face it – weekly markets, farm shops and unpacked shops are great, but you don’t always find the time to go there. And cooking and baking is fun, but often it has just go quickly too. […]

Food for the bees

Food for the bees

What can we do right now despite Covid-19-crisis?

Maike and I have thought about starting a blog for you now, in which we report not only about our products but also about sustainable and interesting topics. In these times we all have to stick together, so at the moment you get a little bag of bee food for free with all online orders.

To ensure that the busy bees find enough food, pollen and nectar, throughout the year, you should always make sure to plant early bloomers as well as summer and autumn flowers in your own garden. But also the wild flowers along the wayside or in “urban gardening areas” on the traffic island in front of your door can help. […]
