We’ve got a serious problem with food waste these days (Americans waste about 40% of the fresh food they buy), and wasted food isn’t just an environmental issue, it’s a financial issue as well. Not only does it take time, water, and money to grow food, but it also costs us money to purchase that food, so when it doesn’t get eaten, but ends up in the bin or the compost pile, it’s a losing situation all around.
But there’s an innovative and affordable little gadget that can make the food in your fridge last 2 to 3 times as long, and can save the average family over $2000 over the course of a year.
The BerryBreeze, which costs less than a small load of groceries, helps to keep food fresh longer by introducing activated oxygen (O3) into the refrigerator, which serves to inhibit ethylene gas (which triggers decay), and to neutralize harmful organisms such as bacteria and mold, while helping food to retain its nutritious qualities and keep your fridge smelling fresh.
“Activated oxygen consists of three oxygen atoms. It is created either when ultraviolet light or electricity break down the oxygen molecule into two single oxygen atoms, each of which quickly attach to two more oxygen atoms (O2). It is an unstable gas whose half-life is approximately 30 minutes. While stable, the third oxygen molecule fights to break free, destroying polluting organic molecules by “oxidizing” them. The third oxygen atom attaches, eliminating pollutants, effectively disinfecting and deodorizing.” – BerryBreeze
BerryBreeze is battery powered, and the unit automatically releases activated oxygen at timed intervals, which serves to keep a consistent level of O3 surrounding the food in the refrigerator.
Berry Breeze is available from the company’s website for about $50 USD.
