Our Story


Welcome to Prairie Minimalist, my name is Melissa owner and maker here at our little shop on the prairies.  I have been blessed to live out in the country where I am surrounded by the beauty that our Saskatchewan land provides and have been able to set up a shop here on our property.

Sadly, our throw away culture is putting our beautiful planet and the creatures that call it home at risk. It is estimated that our country produces an estimated 3.3 millions tons of plastic waste each year! That plastic is not going anywhere.  Every piece of plastic that has ever been made is still here.  If we can make small changes over time, I believe it can make a difference. 

In my quest to reduce waste and toxins in our life, I came across beeswax wraps. I started experimenting with recipes to get a perfect wax wrap. Not all wraps are created equal!  I thought they were such a cool way to store food and I have loved sharing this product with others.

Our goal is not perfection but making small changes as we can. In our shop, we strive to provide some great eco-friendly, natural products that we love and use in our own home. We are always on the look out for items that are beautiful, functional, affordable and easy to incorporate into daily life. We continue to learn and grow in our search for ways to reduce waste in our lives.

Thanks for stopping by my shop.  We love to hear from you.  Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or special requests.
