    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 activites on the beach. This is the first time many of us have been able to spend two nights in a yurt. KE

    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.

    To set up a business you need to get funding, get your name heard and have a website. With a website people can order what you are selling from far away.

    Another part of setting up a business is learning how to sell your product. So, my friend and I made a poster board to teach people at our school about the beeswax wraps. We run a little business selling the wraps after school for 15 minutes to help pay for our field study about plastics and the effects on the Pacific Ocean. We had to learn to go up and talk to people to get them interested. We also had to problem solve the best place to sell them at the school. After we figure out all the details of selling we will help the other students know how to run the after school sell of beeswax wraps.

    I am helping my Dad set up the website bridgerbeeswaxwrap.com. First, our class came up with a name. I helped take pictures of the wraps and how to use them. My Dad and my teacher collected ideas on a spreadsheet, then we put the ideas into the website.
