For those of you new to my word sharing, I am a vegan. As a vegan, produce is a big deal in our home. For several years we were members of a local CSA. This last year we became members of the Purple Dragon co-op. In the summer months, there is a farm market both in the town where I work, and on Sunday morning’s where I live. Summer months at the Jersey Shore boast magnificent farm stands with amazing corn, peaches , Jersey blueberries, and Jersey tomatoes. I think I have successfully painted the picture for you that we buy a lot of organic produce.
A large part of our eating regiment is fresh whenever possible, organic whenever possible, and local whenever possible. A snapshot of our refrigerator would show it’s amply packed produce drawers as the final visual I am trying to get across here.
Now as much as I love meals that include a variety of lovely fruits and veggies, I also love getting the most bang for my buck whenever possible. Buying my produce wisely was one good choice, but watching some of it fade away because it was taking us too long to eat it, was cancelling the money saving part of that choice out.
Enter E.G.G. While researching for my year long project of learning about Green/Sustainable things made in the USA (visit Greenin RedWhiteBlue) , I came across this product. I am so impressed by the results, a couple of people got them in their holiday gift bag.
Simple breakdown to why I am in love with the E.G.G.
- A fridge is full of ethylene. It can make your produce go bad quickly. That wastes my money, upsets my cooking plans, and makes me cranky.
- An E.G.G., Ethylene Gas Guardian, absorbs that ethylene, and preserves the freshness of my produce. The product has proven itself to me. Fresher produce. Less food waste. Less money waste. Makes me happy.
- Very affordable. Splurge. Get the E.G.G for a year. After your first three months you will be happy you invested in the full package.
- Volcanic Ash. I don’t get to use Volcanic Ash in my home much. It’s a perk.
- Enviromentally! You use the same E.G.G outside over and over. The inner ingredients are 100% safe and eco friendly. After the three months, you can put your volcanic ash in your plants soil. They will feel like they visited Hawaii (okay I made that up..but the spent zeolite is a natural soil and the MnO2 provides trace minerals to the soil. Your plants will love it.)
I like the EGGMAN movie because it explains the process very well.. There is also a page for those who want the science skinny on how this all works.
I have seen that you can get the E.G.G. via Amazon and couple of other sites, but it is so affordable to go direct, I get mine right at Productfreshness.com.
