Just a note:
Published: 3 Dec 2019
According to The Big Issue, two million turkeys, five million Christmas puddings and over 74 million mince pies are wasted every year at Christmas in the UK. With the estimated number of 270. 000 tonnes of food wasted in the UK each year, half of brits have said that they usually overspend on food at Christmas, but for what?
Fruit bowls brimming with exotic fresh produce and fridges crammed with fruit and vegetables to cater for extra guests, the majority of us cater for more than usual over the festive period. Often the additional purchases end up wasted as they become an unnecessary additional buy. You only have to look at the number of black bags at the end of every street to see just how much waste is created at Christmas. An alternative to throwing away the excess is to pop a Fresh Pod in with the produce to extend their life by up to 4 times longer than normal.
Not only will this exceptional little pod help to reduce the amount of food your household wastes over the Christmas period but it will also decrease the amount of money you spend; £480 per household according to WRAP in 2006! At the low cost of £12.99, a 12-month kit will pay for itself over and over again by extending shelf life of fruit and vegetables for up to four times longer. Fresh Pod is in 1000s of households and after 10 years of saving money for those families its track record is well proven as a natural and safe choice.
Use the pod this Christmas as the perfect stocking filler or even a general gift for friends, family or colleagues. An unusual but useful and exciting gift. Not only are they useful and will last a full year (much longer than many presents received) they will also save the recipient a considerable amount of money by reducing their food waste over the course of 2020.
How Fresh Pod works:
Ethylene gas is given off naturally from fruit, vegetables and flowers as they mature which means that your fruit and vegetables will have a reduced shelf life. Increased wastages adds pressure to household budgets.
Fresh Pod utilises organically approved ethylene absorbing zeolite pellets. A reaction oxidises ethylene gas converting the filter material to manganese dioxide which is an excellent plant fertiliser also approved for organics. Fresh Pod eliminates 98.9% of ethylene gas in a safe and non-toxic way.
By controlling the levels of ethylene gas in your fridge, fruit bowl or vase of flowers this will extend the shelf life for up to four times longer all of which has financial benefits.
How do I use Fresh Pod?
One individual Fresh Pod sachet is about the size of a teabag and when placed in its pod in the fridge, will ensure that the content stays fresher for longer. Make sure you take them out of their plastic wrappers. Various sizes and packs can be purchased depending on your needs. When the time comes for the sachet to be changed, usually around six months, the contents make a fantastic fertiliser that you can use to feed your house plants.
