Daily Grommet

InventHelp’s Invention Girl loves fresh fruit and vegetables. What I don’t love is that these fruits and vegetables seem to start going bad as soon as I get them home. I feel so wasteful spending money on fresh produce only to throw it away before I get a chance to enjoy it. Unfortunately, I’m not the only one that has this problem. According to the USDA, Americans throw away about $600 of spoiled produce every year – what a waste!

The BluApple by the Daily Grommet is a great new invention that preserves the life of fresh produce in and out of your fridge. Some fruits and vegetables naturally give off ethylene gas which can become a problem for you. If too much ethylene gas builds up in your fridge or pantry, the ripening process will speed up causing the produce to spoil. The BluApple absorbs the ethylene gas, slows down ripening and allows you to enjoy the produce longer. You don’t even have to take the produce out of its bag for it to work. Each non-toxic BluApple can absorb ethylene gas for up to three months and the easy-to-replace refills are used after that.

I always seem to have a hard time keeping bananas and lettuce fresh in my home. I decided to take action and put the BluApple to work. All I had to do was put one BluApple out by the bananas and another in the same bin as the lettuce in my fridge and BluApple did the rest. I noticed after about a week that my bananas were staying a healthy-looking yellow and my lettuce wasn’t shriveling up either. I also was happy that the BluApple was very small and it hardly took up any of my precious counter and fridge space!

Think of how much money and food you’ll save with a little BluApple in your kitchen!
