One-Third of Food Is Lost or Wasted: What Can Be Done

At 2.8 trillion pounds, that's enough sustenance to feed three billion people. In the United States, the waste is even more egregious: More than 30 percent of our food, valued at $162 billion annually, isn't eaten. Pile all that food on a football field and the layers would form a putrefying casserole miles high.

Fenugreen Freshpaper: keep produce fresh for 2-4 times longer

An innovative and active “dryer sheet of paper” made from edible organic extracts (Impregnated with organic spices) that can be placed under the produce where it’s stored.

Inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi and the like, making the food last longer: keep produce fresh for 2-4 times longer than normal 

It’s biodegradable and can be composted or recycled. 

As long as the sheet emits a maple-like odor that means it’s active. After about two or three weeks, the smell will fade and the sheet should be replaced.
