NOT MANY BRANDS CAN CLAIM TO BE THE ORIGINAL
Apiwraps started because Freyja Tasci needed something she couldn’t find anywhere.
And it turns out heaps of other families needed it too.
It’s so exciting to know all these homes around Australia are making a difference.
All those people becoming #ZeroWasteHeroes.
AND NOW YOU!
10 Years of Apiwraps Evolution
Working furiously out of a little kitchen in Bangalow, NSW after getting the babies to bed
Testing ideas and selling at the markets in Byron Bay
Moving to Maitland and hiring so many people – with five or six people turning up at the house to work every day
Working out of the old antique shop that we grew out of so fast
Building custom made machines and moving into a real proper warehouse with a forklift
Bringing together an amazing team that held the business up while Freyja moved to Adelaide to fall in love and bring her family together
And during Covid, relocating to a big shed on a beautiful property and hiring an amazing team of women who support Apiwraps when we need help.
The theme running through the last 10 years has always been the same:
A fantastic product.
A vision of the future where cling wrap is replaced in every kitchen.
And a crowd of zero waste heroes who are leading the change.
THAT’S YOU. THE ZERO WASTE HEROES.
We Started with $200
It may not look like it now we’re stocked in places like ALDI, but every time you support Apiwraps you’re buying from a mama business start up
The type that began with a dream of being home and available to care for little ones over those early years.
A business that started with an idea and $200 pinched from the housekeeping money, boldly invested in fabric from Spotlight and a bucket of unfiltered beeswax from the local beekeeper.
