A wrap! A non-toxic, reusable, recyclable and fun (yes, fun!) wrap. Self-sticking like cling film but not as thin and unmanageable means you can easily cover and seal bowls, and wrap the oddest-shaped food items.
Being super stretchy and strong makes it easy to create a perfectly airtight seal on any-sized bowl, cup, glass or plate. No petrochemicals, fillers, BPA, or lead. No nasties. It’s the same high quality 100% food grade silicone rubber used in infant and medical products.
It can be used in ovens, fridges, freezers, microwaves and dishwashers. No more foil or baking paper! It’s hygienic, non-stick and does not store odours. Being 100% food grade silicone means that it can be used in the oven without the funny smell that some silicone composite products off-gas when baked.
Use it, wash it, repeat again and again, 1000's of times. Always on hand, always ready, never run out of baking paper, cling film, or aluminium foil again!
EVERY PACK CONTAINS:
TWO SMALL & TWO LARGE WRAPS
Small - 20cm x 20cm
A perfect size for wrapping biscuits, cakes, slices, cheese, fruit, and vegetables, sealing small bowls or cups, lining the base of cake pans, and so much more.
Large - 30cm x 30cm
This big wrap just does it all. Discover how easy it is to wrap bread rolls, baguettes, sandwiches, even half-cut melons and pumpkins! Cover large bowls, medium bowls, dinner plates and platters. You can use it in baking trays or place over a slow-cooking dish that you don't want to dry out. Even makes a great pastry mat!
If you treat your Agreena 3-in-1 Wraps with care, you can expect many years of use and they can be recycled after a lifetime of use. It's entirely true that you may never have to buy another wrap again. Thus reducing the amount of single-use products you might ordinarily use. This is great news for you and for the planet.
Wash your Agreena 3-in-1 Wraps in warm soapy water and hang off the edge of a bench or countertop — or just stick them to your splashback or tiled wall — to dry. Depending on whether you are a folder or a scruncher you can then fold them neatly and store them in a drawer or scrunch them and throw them into a basket on your counter. Your Agreena 3-in-1 Wrap will last forever if you just follow these golden rules:
- Keep away from sharp or pointy objects (DO NOT use the Agreena 3-in-1 Wrap as a cutting mat)
- Do not exceed 220ºC (428ºF) in the oven
- Avoid using sugar or honey-based syrups and acidic substances as they can cause discolouration and weakness
- Wash with very warm soapy water and dry after each use
- Make sure that the Agreena 3-in-1 Wrap, your hands, and the item being sealed are completely dry to ensure good adherence
Created from the same material as infant and medical products, the Agreena 3-in-1 Wraps are made from the highest quality 100% food grade silicone rubber, with no fillers, BPA, or lead. Silicone rubber contains oxygen bonded with silicon, a natural element that is abundant in sand and rock. Food grade silicone is known for its heat-resistant and rubber-like qualities and is safe for the oven, microwave, fridge, and freezer. Unlike other silicone products only high quality, 100% food grade silicone is considered a “stable compound,” meaning that it will not change the flavour or release odours that might affect food quality and will not release chemicals or toxins when heated or in breaking down.
CLING FILM contains chemicals that have been proven to be extremely harmful to health, especially at high temperatures? It leaches contaminants into the environment while taking decades to break down. It is not reusable or recyclable!
ALUMINIUM FOIL contains neurotoxins? These toxins affect brain function (to put it mildly) and dangerous amounts escape into food at elevated temperatures. Contaminating the environment while taking hundreds of years to break down. It is also not reusable or recyclable!
BAKING AND PARCHMENT PAPER are sometimes coated with a waxy substance called ‘Quilon’ that becomes toxic when burned. Others containing silicone won’t protect you from the (super bad ) dioxin that is formed when the chlorine in the paper reacts to heat. They are made from trees and are not reusable or recyclable!
From a single sustainable process and readily available elements, thousands of durable waste-reducing silicone wraps can be created, contributing to the sustainable manufacturing and resource conservation movements.
- Agreena 3-in-1 Wraps serve as a more environmentally sound alternative to volatile organic compounds and other chemicals.
- Agreena 3-in-1 Wraps reduce our dependence on petroleum-based organic materials.
- Agreena 3-in-1 Wraps reduce raw material requirements and energy and water consumption in its manufacturing processes.
- Agreena 3-in-1 Wraps meet growing consumer desires for sustainably-produced products
With every shipment of the Agreena 3-in-1 Wrap, we pledge to invest in climate protection projects that comply with the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) criteria set down in the Kyoto Protocol. Independent third-parties monitor the emission reductions of these projects. A percentage from every pack sold will go to those organisations that are working hard on environmental education, innovation, and cleanups. We pledge to provide full transparency on all climate protection projects supported.
At every step, from production to packaging, we make decisions based solely on lowering environmental impact, ethical manufacturing, protecting our customers and supporting change. From paying for carbon offsets, to the higher production costs we shoulder to create a product you may never have to replace or re-purchase, we are taking this approach because we believe that this is how business should be.
I had been bugged for so long about the amount of single-use, disposable plastic I was forced to use: the waste — the sheer volume of it — the toxins and the knowledge that it didn’t magically disappear when tossed out. The moment happened when I was playing with a thin sheet of rubber one day and thinking “wow this stuff is like cling film, it sticks to itself, it sticks to surfaces, but it’s durable!” and all of a sudden the bleeding obvious appeared in front of my eyes. Hardly believing that something so simple had not been created, I set out on a crusade, approaching manufacturers and getting prototype after prototype made until it worked exactly as I wanted.
However, I still wasn’t thinking of selling it so much as proving to myself that it could work. And it did. It worked so well, was so simple and ticked so many boxes, that I knew that I would never forgive myself if I didn’t put this out there for other people who are just as freaked out about toxins and landfill as I was.
What started out as a solo journey has come to encompass a dynamic and creative team of people who are working together, collaboratively, to launch this innovating green business. We’ve got more people on board, and more support, but with no trust funds or wealthy benefactors amongst us, all the funds have gone into prototyping, trademarking, and patenting to keep the integrity of this product intact. We want this product to be a springboard for our little budding business to grow, to continue creating greener alternatives, and to eco-empower people to make a change on an individual and collective level. There are already new products and innovations waiting in the wings and ready to join the 3-in-1 Wraps in the fight against landfill! But with no major working capital (but hey, we have no debt either) we need you to help us get this wrap into homes and kick single-use plastics to the kerb.

Risks and challenges
Bringing a product from the drawing board to reality is not an easy task.
We've worked for nearly two years on the Agreena 3-in1 Wraps, iterating through various prototypes and overcoming manufacturing obstacles.
Our production is ready to go. We're asking for your support to fund our first large-batch run and prove that the Agreena 3-in-1 Wrap is a product that people want.
Rest assured that we wouldn't bring this to Kickstarter if we weren’t completely confident that we could get our project delivered to backers on schedule. Be amongst the first to own the Agreena 3-in-1 Wraps and help us make our dream of agreena world a reality.
