FreshPaper

31 August 2012

In developed countries, a third of fresh food is thrown away, often because of poor preservation: a gigantic waste that could be reduced if we were to adopt different kinds of packaging. For this reason Fenugreen, a company in Massachusetts, has invented FreshPaper, a sheet of paper made from organic material that inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi and the like, making the food last longer. All you need to do is place a sheet of FreshPaper in the containers in which it is refrigerated, and the food will keep two or three times longer. A sheet lasts from two to three weeks and, at the end of its life, can be thrown on the compost heap. For the moment, it can be found in the supermarkets of the American Whole Foods chain, or bought online (but only in the United States). (via Design to Improve Life)

She sits astride Italy, Belgium and Southeast Asia, and sometimes falls off. When asked what she does, she replies: I do things, see people. She has been writing about furniture for twenty years and is still not tired of it, in spite of everything. She has no free time, and is not even interested in it. For her it’s enough not to have to go to the same office everyday. She mixes with unlikely people, and contributes to Klat for this very reason.
