Birds of Aotearoa Snack Bag


Size:   17 cm wide x 15 cm tall (plus foldover flap)


Our beeswax snack bags are so handy, whether you're after a healthy fruit snack or something a bit more indulgent.   And they're every bit as handy keeping leftovers in top condition in your fridge.

The breathable beeswax blend keeps breads and pastries fresher for longer, without drying out or getting soggy - crisper crusts and softer centres,  just the way you like them.  Cheese does especially well - no dry corners, no sweating - and fruit stays crisp and fresh for far longer. 

Beeswax bags do some of their best work in your fridge and freezer, allowing your food to breathe while protecting it at the same time, keeping it fresher and tastier for longer, and making it easy to pre-pack lunches the night before, without losing quality overnight.  (When removing from the freezer,  give the wrap or bag a few minutes to defrost before removing, just to prevent any cracking of the wrap.)

Just pinch the top edges together and fold down to seal and protect your food.


Hand wash between uses with cool water and dishwashing detergent, allowing to dry completely before storing in a cool, dry place. 


As always with our beeswax wrap products, avoid heat - no microwaves, dishwashers or hot water - and do not use on raw meat. 


Please note, all our beeswax bags and wraps are handmade by an actual living human, so small variations are inevitable. 




Help us go one better:  We’re all about reducing all sorts of waste, not just plastic.  Your bags and wraps can be individually banded (as pictured), but if you’re buying just for yourself, you’re probably going to only read one of the bands, right?  Let us know in the “Add a note to your order” field at checkout how many bands you want to receive.   Thanks!


We will always do our best to send your order out within 2-3 working days, but please note that most of our candles in particular are made to order, which may require a few more days  lead time.  If you need an something in a particularly tight timeline, feel free to drop us an email or give us a call on 06 876 8852 and we'll do our best to help. 


Delivery Costs and Timelines

New Zealand:

Courier delivery $7 flat rate on orders up to $50 value.

FREE COURIER DELIVERY in NZ on orders $50+.   

Delivery Timeline: 2-3 working days after dispatch.


Australia & Rest of World:

 Sadly, due to rising costs of international delivery and extended delivery delays, as of 3 November 2020 we have removed our international shipping option. 


We hope to resume international deliveries when the situation improves, but for now we believe this is our only option to avoid disappointment to customers.   


International Orders and Bee Products

Different countries have different rules around importation of natural products, and it's common for beeswax not to be allowed in order to protect the health of their local bees.  We get it.  After all, Kev and I (Dee) are beekeepers, first and foremost.

HOWEVER, we have very tight biosecurity and good bee health here in New Zealand, and as many of our products are a blend of beeswax, tree resin and other oils, there is no risk they will ever end up being used directly in a beehive, as a block of pure beeswax might.   

Therefore we've had no problem with border restrictions, and as at the date of writing this, our products have been sent without problem to Australia, the US, Canada, the UK, and a dozen other countries . 

Some countries may have various border or import charges - please note that you will be responsible for any such charges. 


What about packaging?  Do you use plastic?

We're committed to eliminating plastic wherever we can - the clear bags our kits are packaged in are NOT plastic.  They are genuine cellophane, made from vegetable cellulose and are fully biodegradable and home compostable. 

And we're very happy to announce that the black courier bags we use are also NOT plastic!  They are made from plants (mostly corn I believe), and are fully biodegradable, and home compostable.  And, a little oddly, they smell like fresh toast, or maybe popcorn!

It's not just plastic we're about reducing though - You'll see on our naked DIY blocks you have the option to buy without packaging, and on every one of our ready-made wrap pages we encourage customers to let us know if they don't need individual packaging on the wraps.
