OXO have launched the Greensaver range to keep fruit and vegetables fresher for longer.
I was floored to find out that each year Australians throw out about $8 billion in edible food and of that $2.6 billion is fresh food! The OXO Greensaver Range is set to help households save time and money by prolonging the life of fresh produce.
In our house we are guilty of throwing out vegetables, in particular lettuce that has gone bad before we’ve used some or any of it. I often joke when I’m cleaning out the crisper and find ‘science experiments’ – soggy cucumber wrapped in glad wrap or something equally disgusting. Even when we put things in the crisper we still seem to waste an awful lot of food.
So how can OXO Greensaver range help waste less and save more?
25% off the fruits and vegetables we buy are thrown away so it makes sense to use a storage system that will keep produce fresher for longer. The OXO Greensaver range is an innovative storage solution which uses a unique system of safe, non-toxic, replaceable carbon filters to absorb the excess ethylene gas released by fruits and vegetables which causes the spoiling.
The produce keepers also feature an elevated basket to promote airflow around produce and preventing rotting, along with an adjustable vent that allows for differing humidity levels for storing different types of fruit and vegetables. There are three stackable sizes in the range:
- OXO Greensaver Produce Keeper – 1.5L ($54.95)
- OXO Greensaver Produce Keeper – 4L ($74.95)
- OXO Greensaver Produce Keeper – 4.7L ($79.95)
The OXO Greensaver Activated Carbon Refills (4 pack) are $24.95 and there is even a OXO Greensaver Crisper Insert (available separately for $24.95) that helps to regulate the levels of ethylene gas in the vegetable drawer of any refrigerator . Now while the range may seem a little pricey, the savings will be huge with all the food you won’t be throwing away anymore.
Last weekend I bought a lettuce and have placed it in the 4L OXO Greensaver Produce Keeper. I will be updating you all on how it lasts with a follow up review late next week.
The OXO Greensaver Range will be available in Howards Storage World from August and selected Myer and Independent homeware stores from September. For more information on the OXO Greensaver Range visit www.oxogreensaver.com.au
