#SaveTheFood with pureAir FRIDGE + Shop Small Business Saturday

Shop Small Business Saturday - #SaveTheFood with pureAir FRIDGE - Eliminate Odors. Extend Food Life

Food is the most prevalent thing taking up space in America’s landfills. Over 50% of seafood, 48% of fruits and vegetables, 38% of grain products, 22% of meat, and 20% of dairy products are thrown away in America. When food is emptied into the landfills, it produces damaging CO2 emissions. In the state of Georgia alone, off-gassing from food waste contributes to more climate pollution than all of the cars. When stored properly, using up leftovers helps the environment.

Not only does food waste affect our planet, but it also costs labor, resources, time, and money. To put this in perspective of how pureAir FRIDGE can help you, consider that a family of four can lose at least $1,500 a year on wasted food (which could equal a deluxe vacation!) This year alone, GreenTech Environmental’s pureAir FRIDGE has helped save over $3.5 million in food waste. 

Food lasts longer than we think when stored correctly. Our pureAir FRIDGE delays the ripening of fruits and vegetables by oxidizing ethylene gas, the hormone that stimulates ripening in many fruits, vegetables, and flowers. The FRIDGE is also effective at oxidizing and lowering pesticide residues on fruits and vegetables, making it nature-friendly and permitted for use on organic produce.

11 Days WITH and WITHOUT pureAir FRIDGE

When you store food using a pureAir FRIDGE, it lasts up to three times longer. In order to prove how long pureAir FRIDGE extends the life of fruits and vegetables, we tested two cartons of strawberries. Both of these containers were purchased from the same cooler at the local grocery store and stored in identical refrigerators set at identical temperatures. After 11 days, the two packages were removed from the refrigerators. The strawberries on the right were dried out and moldy, but the strawberries pictured on the left remained fresh and juicy.

pureAir FRIDGE also enhances food safety. Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a food safety alert on romaine lettuce from the growing region of Salinas, California. This alert includes all types of romaine lettuce such as whole heads of romaine, organic romaine, hearts of romaine, romaine in salad wraps, and packages of pre-cut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix, and Caesar salad. All of these products may be contaminated with E. coli and are making people sick.

The good news is that when your refrigerator is armed with the pureAir FRIDGE, your fresh produce is healthy no matter where it is grown and you are safe! The FRIDGE produces a strong, safe antimicrobial agent that is active against molds, yeasts, bacteria, spores, viruses, and parasites found on the produce, on the hard surfaces, and in the air in your refrigerator. It leaves no hazardous residues, making it nature-friendly. 

Safe, fresh food is what we all need. pureAir FRIDGE delivers just that. This holiday season, support Small Business Saturday and gift the FRIDGE to your friends and loved ones. They will thank you for helping them become a food waste warrior!
