You’ve got the yummy camp food— but what do you do when you don’t quite finish it all? Practicing Leave No Trace principles is always ideal when you’re in the outdoors—and Meli Wraps, based in both Bend and Kauai, makes that easier. The beeswax food wraps let you forego the foil or plastic you may be using to wrap food items, replacing those throwaway items with something you can wash and reuse over and over. Meli Wraps
