Having a sustainable lifestyle isn’t all about reducing plastics and hard waste but also means reducing your carbon footprint and garbage as a whole. Food waste is too prevalent in many countries, and within Australia alone it makes up a third of the waste processed by waste facilities. On average, Australian households throw away 2.5 million tonnes of edible food each year – that equates to nearly 300 kilograms per person! To support reducing food waste, Urban Ethos has partnered with FreshPaper to provide you with revolutionary products that help you reduce your food waste by making your fruits, veggies and baked goods fresher for longer.
FreshPaper products are 100% natural food saver sheets designed to be dropped into any existing packaging, fridge drawer or fruit bowl filled with produce. The perfect solution to helping you keep your food lasting longer, FreshPaper keeps your fresh produce fresh 2-4 times longer. Infused with botanicals that inhibit bacterial and fungal growth as well as enzymes that cause over-ripening, these simple sheets of paper are fully sustainable, compostable and recyclable. There is no zeolite, no sodium permanganate or charcoal. One sheet of FreshPaper can reduce your waste by more than 50% - it is low-cost, essentially paying itself, and is an easy to use solution to avoid spoiled quality produce and baked goods in your household. A simple, intuitive design that can be used by anyone, anywhere.
