We are driven by common sense. We are focused on providing a versatile material that can be used multiple times, many ways, for varying degrees of food storage; that you can feel good about whole-heartedly. Besides, plastic film has only existed for fifty odd years. The human race has been storing food for ages.
Who is behind it?
She is the creator, the brains and the face. She wades through the business world with a background in holistic nutrition and years in the service industry. Oh yeah, she feels like her background has totally prepared her.
He handles the production and makes up the muscle. The job is perfect for him as aspiring writer. Turns out repetitive tasks give a man a ton of time to fabricate stories.
How did Abeego come to life?
Oh it was simple. I set a few rules and got right to work:
1. All ingredients used will be completely natural.
2. No chemical alteration will be needed for the material to be effective.
3. Each selected material has been used for preservation at some point
4. All ingredients have natural characteristics that would be suitable for
5. All were already approved by the FDA for food contact.
I listened to idea after idea, thought after thought in what was to become Abeego, morning, noon, and night, for almost five months. I took the long way home from work occasionally for the peace and quiet. Behind every good woman is a man.
Why do we share our blend?
Beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil are the reasons Abeego is effective. If we do not share the ingredients we can't really tell you why Abeego works and that doesn't make a lot of sense to us.
What about our waste?
We realized early in our business that the excess Abeego is not waste at all, it is potential for a waste generated resource. We use as much of it as possible. We create business cards from it and share it in the form of Abeebits; our version of the handy twist tie.
Who has contributed to Abeego?
Now that is a long list. We are grateful to each and every one of you that contributed to what has become Abeego. We would also like to pre-thank each of you that will help us as we grow.
What is the future of Abeego?
Who the heck knows, guess we will all find out!
