BluApple Review and Giveaway! (3 Winners!) - CLOSED!

Did you know that the average family throws away as much as $600 worth of spoiled produce each year? Imagine what you could do with an extra $600 a year... I want to tell you about a product that can help to reduce the spoilage of your produce called the BluApple. I received a BluApple two pack to review and I immediately stuck one in my refrigerator and placed one in a container with our bananas. I must admit that I am guilty of throwing spoiled produce away before we get around to eating it so I was excited to try this! I have noticed that my produce is staying fresher longer! Usually by mid week my bananas are starting to get too ripe and I have to use them up really fast before they end up in the garbage. With the BluApple sitting next to them, I noticed that they were not ripening as fast so we could enjoy them for longer without worrying about scarfing them down at the next meal!
Are you wondering how this works? Well I'll tell you! Produce naturally gives off ethylene gas as a signaling mechanism in order to coordinate uniform ripening. Now when this ethylene gas is given off in your home and refrigerator it becomes concentrated and begins to speed up ripening and hasten spoilage. The BluApple is designed to absorb the ethylene gas effectively for up to 3 months. It doesn't wear out in 3 months, however it reaches it's ethylene gas capacity and you will just need to add a new packet to your BluApple. The packets are great because they are so safe that you can use them as fetilizer! Using refills means that you are not adding your BluApple to the landfill! Another great thing is that you can register on their website and you’ll get a handy reminder when it’s time to replace your BluApple packet.

BUY IT:

You can purchase your own BluApple and refills here!

WIN IT:
