Oh Beehive

Alison O., Oh Beehive, Owner

Barrie, ON

Alison could see there was demand for plastic free alternates and in 2017 she launched her business Oh Beehive. Handmade in Barrie, ON, Oh Beehive offers beeswax food wraps and bumble bags in a variety of patterns and sets.

Where did the inspiration for your business stem from?

The inspiration for my business started out as making Beeswax Wraps to use around the house and ended up taking them to the office for my packed lunches. The idea of running this as a business did not exist until I soon realized that there was a demand for plastic free alternatives in the house and beyond.

What did you wonder about when you were growing up?

I always wondered what I was going to be when I grew up – I am still growing up and this business has been the most least expected happening to come into my life, and I am LOVING every second of it.

Why is community important to you?

The community is extremely important to me because without it I would not be where I am today – I’d likely be back at the front desk of my previous job and always thinking and wondering what to do next with my life.

Tell us about an obstacle you faced in your life, how did you overcome it?

An obstacle that anyone will face at some point in their life is having to be available for people in your life as they have made themselves to you. Being available to family members when they fall ill is something that has helped me grow and understand the importance of having patience, kindness and forgiveness. Business can always wait, and customers are always understanding. Family first.

What are your goals for the next five years?

For the next five years I hope to increase production speed, hire a million staff members, and educate EVERYONE on this planet about alternatives to plastic. That’s realistic, isn’t it? In all seriousness, my goals are to continue to educate and to expand my business in any way that I can.
