These Dipam Beeswax DIY Reusable Food Wrap Kits are part of the small collection of DiY items at Cross & Woods.
Beeswax wrap is a reusable and sustainable alternative to plastic wrap and single-use plastic. It has the ability to counteract environmental issues such as plastic pollution and food waste. Beeswax wrap’s main use is food preservation. It is breathable and allows food to stay fresh for longer, reducing food wastage.
Dipam started in 1983 in the Netherlands by Jos Willemse as a project to help people to get back on track. It gradually grew into a unique enterprise. The centuries-old craft of making bees wax candles turned out to be a wonderful way to gain work experience, social skills and self-confidence. A Tibetan monk who came to visit the company at the time gave it its name: Dipam, light that cannot go out.
Today, their small traditional factory in Driebergen (NL) still feels like a home away from home:
“ We make bees wax candles, rapeseed wax candles and other bees wax products here. Together we are a colourful mix of people who make, pack, sell and distribute beautiful, natural products. Everyone at Dipam – from candle makers to the manager, from packers to administrative staff – is challenged to keep developing themselves and the company.
Making beautiful, sustainable candles together. That is what it is all about for us. That’s why we have made sure that no one can ever buy or sell Dipam. We are our own company. We combine part of our profit with the profits of other companies that share our views. This is done through the Sleipnir foundation. Thus, we create social venture capital with which these companies help each other to innovate, to develop sustainable products, and to let people and the nature around us flourish. Without the intervention of banks or shareholders. ”
