Keepin' It Fresh

If you’re anything like me the following scenario will sound familiar to you: You go to the store and buy all sorts of yummy produce. Fruit and veggies galore! You even get a few organic things, cause you know you should. You go home, put it all away in your fridge and two days later when you go to get a handful of those strawberries or to use that spinach you bought, they’ve already gone bad! To me, there are few things more frustrating. Not only have I now wasted my money, but usually the items that fade the fastest are the ones I was most excited about getting to eat. This leads me to hesitate on buying foods like this the next time I go to the store, making me miss out on some of my favorite, healthy foods. Well I’ve had enough and am so excited to tell you about a newer product at EcoMtn that has changed my food buying game... It’s called Fresh Paper. 

Fresh Paper sheets are infused with organic spices that keep fruits & veggies fresh for 2-4x longer, naturally.  FreshPaper was created by a young inventor who happened upon the active ingredients after accidentally drinking some tap water while visiting her grandma in India. Her grandma gave her a home remedy - a mixture of spices - which kept her from getting sick. After years of research and development, starting with a middle school science project, she discovered a new application of her grandma's generations-old home remedy - a remarkably effective way to keep food fresh. 

This magic little piece of “paper” has some serious spoil fighting properties. All it takes is one sheet for a whole berry carton, produce drawer, salad bag or fruit bowl and the food lasts up to 4x longer and each sheet lasts for up to a month! I started using them about a month ago and have seen such huge results. All of my food is lasting so much longer than it previously did. Even the vegetable that gets shoved to the back of the drawer is usually still good when I finally see it! These little sheets are helping people cut way down on their food waste, which not only saves us money but it so much better for our earth. Twenty-five percent of the worlds food supply is lost to spoilage. This just doesn’t seem right to me. I am so thankful for companies like Fresh Paper who are working hard and giving us products that can help with problems like these.

Everyone can benefit from a product like this, so get on down to our beautiful store, grab a few sheets and see your food last long enough for you to really enjoy it! ;)
