    We are selling the beeswax wraps to fund our zero waste field study of the Pacific Ocean ecosystems. We will be learning about the microplastics and the effects they have on the ocean habitats. We plan on bringing the wraps to wrap our lunches and snacks. In addition, we will bring our own utensils to help make this a zero waste field trip. Besides learning about the ocean habitats and the effects of plastic pollution, we also plan on having fun. We get to stay in yurts and do activities on the beach. This is the first time many of us have been able to spend two nights in a yurt.

    Say...

    The beeswax wraps are an alternative to plastic wrap. They are made by the students and parents using only organic high grade materials, jojoba oil, beeswax, pine resin, and cotton material. First, our teacher made us each one and then we made the rest . This year we are using our beeswax wraps for wrapping our daily snacks instead of using a plastic bag. We eat the snacks during our reading and writing time. These wraps create zero waste. That’s why we love our wraps. We use our wraps everyday and it feels good that we know we are helping our planet.

    About the wraps

    Says...

    The wraps are made from beeswax, pine resin and jojoba oil. The ingredients are melted and painted on the cloth. The cloth is between two pieces of parchment paper and then ironed on both sides. The parchment paper is peeled off and the wrap is hung for a few minutes. You can just shake it gently until it dries too.

    To re-fresh your wrap ( when it looses it's stickiness) just iron briefly like mentioned above and hang. If your wrap needs more wax, send it back to Bridger and we will re-wax and return your wrap.

    To clean your wrap, just rinse with cool water. If you need to wash it use natural soap, rinse and air dry.

  • Recycling Milk Cartons 2019-2020

    2019-2020

    This year the 5th graders have successfully started composting all food in the cafeteria and recycling milk cartons. They trained all classes and monitor the clean up at each lunch. True activists. They are helping Bridger become a zero waste school. We will continue our work with the district to stop using single use plastics in the cafeteria.
