MIDDLEBURY — The Bee’s Wrap brought home kudos in early September from the B Lab, earning the 2019 Best For The World: Environment award for the business’s attention to environmental stewardship.
Based in Middlebury, Bee’s Wrap makes reusable food storage wraps designed to replace plastic wrap.
Bee’s Wrap, a Certified B Corporation, is one of three Vermont businesses to earn this honor, alongside Seventh Generation and SunCommon.
Granted by the B Lab, the global nonprofit that certifies and supports Certified B Corporations, the award honors B Corp members who are taking bold action to preserve the planet’s most precious resources.
These companies consider the impact of their everyday footprint, including energy usage, materials, facilities, supply chain, and more.
In order to earn the award, companies needed to score in the top 10 percent of all Certified B Corps in the Environment category of the B Impact Assessment.

“We carefully consider the environmental impact of everything we do at Bee’s Wrap, from sourcing materials to the way our workshop operates and beyond,” said Bee’s Wrap Founder and CEO Sarah Kaeck. “We’re pushing back on plastic waste with intentional, simple food storage solutions, and we pride ourselves on helping our customers embrace reusable goods, one kitchen at a time.”
