THE FRESHPAPERStory

We started out by taking handmade batches of FreshPaper to our local farmer’s market. We had no funding and no experience, but we believed that this simple idea might be able to help our community eat healthier, and that selling FreshPaper might just help us get it to food banks and families in need.

We never imagined that a grassroots movement would one day bring FreshPaper from that market stall to farmers & families across the globe. At every step of this unbelievable journey, we’ve been inspired by our earliest supporters, starting with that very first farmer’s market.

“One sheet of maple-scented FreshPaper helped my basket of very ripe strawberries last more than a week in the fridge. A sheet tossed into a plastic bag with cilantro (coriander) helped the herb last about 10 days.”

Jane Black, The Washington Post

Our top tips on how to use your FreshPaper

    For smaller items, i.e. a strawberry punnet, cut a piece of FreshPaper in half and place it underneath the fruit

    If you’re storing lots of produce in the one place, be sure to place another sheet on top so all your fruit and veg gets some FreshPaper love!

    FreshPaper works best on really fresh produce so begin using as soon as you unpack your fruit and veg

    When using your FreshPaper in a fridge drawer make sure to keep the produce bags open for best results
