I was skeptical when these were first given to me. Now I don't know how I managed to keep fruit and vegetables fresh before. I have purchased these as gifts and Christmas stocking stuffers for family and friends.

I would definitely recommend FreshPaper. I have no idea how it works, but it does work! I have noticed it makes a big difference with strawberries, spinach and most especially with spring mix lettuce that has red lettuce in it. I will not buy spring mix if I don't have FreshPaper in the house because the red lettuce gets so disgusting black and slimy really fast. I put this in the clam shell and it keeps it fresh. Also crucial with raspberries, which I find turn almost as soon as I get them home from the store. I won't buy raspberries unless I have this in the house. When the carton is empty, I put the FreshPaper loose in the veggie drawer for the other veggies in there. I have had to buy FreshPaper at WholeFoods; it's nice to be able to get it on Amazon!

This product has a pleasant, spicy scent. While I enjoy it, I was worried that it would end up making my fruit and vegetables smell funny. I am happy to report that the scent doesn’t transfer at all. Thanks to a lack of marital communication, I unintentionally did a test of this product and have evidence that it works. Recently my husband and I each came home with bags of apples. I put mine in a fruit bowl lined with a sheet of Freshpaper, he put his in a separate bowl. While my family of three loves apples, it took us a while to eat up our combined purchases. Over that time, the apples in the Freshpaper bowl stayed fresh. Several of the other apples got mushy and had to be thrown away. It’s helped extend the life of vegetables in my crisper drawer, also. I can’t wait for farmer’s market season to begin so I can load up on goodies with no fear of waste!

I turn almost everything fresh into Penicillin in my fridge. I don't mean to and I always feel bad about it, but I just don't get to my fruits and veggies fast enough. I found this product and wasn't sure if it would do the trick in helping me preserve my groceries. I was going to just start vacuum sealing my (almost) gone produce, but who really has time for that and this was such a cheap solution if it worked. Well, I am here to say that it definitely works and I definitely get A LOT more time to use the stuff I was rotting before. I use it two ways - underneath a tray of strawberries I always get at Costco (and they don't grow hair or any kind of fuzz because of it), and also in the fridge drawers. One sheet usually lasts about 3 or 4 weeks, maybe longer if I forget to change it, but it is DEFINITELY buying me time to not waste food.

This is an amazing product. It does exactly what it says and keeps berries fresh much longer. It's well worth the money.

Fresh Paper really works to keep fruits and veggies fresh longer! I put the sheets EVERYWHERE...counter top fruit bowl, fridge drawers and inside berry containers and the large bags of lettuce and greens from Costco. I love that 1 sheet or half a sheet keeps a whole bowl fresh, doesn't need to be in direct contact with the fruit. Especially love it for BANANAS, since I like mine on the green side. Now I can buy large bunches of bananas and enjoy them before they turn brown.

I'm so glad to know that Amazon now carries Fresh Paper! We are huge berry eaters and really rely on Fresh Paper to keep our berries fresher longer. Gone are the days of moldy strawberries! I cut a sheet in half and stick it in my strawberry clamshell or use a whole sheet in my crisper drawer. We also have a garden and are sometimes overrun with one particular veggie. It's pretty fantastic to know that with Fresh Paper you don't have to eat all the zucchini in one week!

By no means will these stop decay from happening but it slows down the appearance of mold on fruits and seems to keep our baby spinach fresh and crisp longer. I buy produce in bulk at Sams Club because they have some of the best tasting produce around town and at affordable prices. However, we are only a family of three and the produce will often start to show signs of decay before we can finish the container. These papers have made it so that we can finish off the food before it goes bad.
"Kavita Shukla started her company a few years ago at a farmers market with $300 dollars and an idea that had been ruminating since a middle school science project.
A decade later, her vision –- a piece of paper infused with spices that would keep food fresh — is shipped to families and farmers in 35 countries.
FreshPaper — inspired by a home remedy given to Shukla by her grandmother — is knocking it out of the park.
“For such a long time, I was told I needed more money,” she told a crowd of 250 rapt women (and a few men) Friday at the Post’s Women in Small Business live event. “I almost lost hope.”
Indeed, money — and the difficulty women have borrowing and raising it — was the recurring theme among the audience and speakers that also included Small Business Administration head Maria Contreras-Sweet, Georgetown Cupcake founders Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne, Personal Independence Trust chair Nell Merlino, and Katherine Jollon Colsher, national Director of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses
Before joining SBA, Contreras-Sweet founded three of her own small business, including a community bank in California and a private equity firm. She said her frustration with the banking systems is what led her to start her own. She would gather women and say to them, “You always tell me you’re frustrated with our own institutions. We need to build ownership. So let’s get together and build a bank of our own.”
The Georgetown Cupcake sisters said no’s and shut-doors were common when they started their first brick-and-mortar shop in 2008, a Georgetown suite smaller than their current Georgetown location.
“[Banks] were skeptical,” said LaMontagne. “Most of the bankers we met with were male.”
Shukla, whose company is called Fenugreen, filed for a patent when she was a senior in high school. Her goal was to get her paper to people in Africa and India who, like her grandmother, didn’t have access to refrigeration.
That was when she started going to the farmers market. “Frankly, the money made a big difference. It funded our first production facility. It funded our ability to get into Whole Foods. It funded us getting out of my apartment,” she said..."

"Liked it so much I am sending some out to friends to try out and to a young woman who is a gourmet cook and wine connoisseur and gets paid for her knowledge... she is my best friends son's girl friend... Save your veggies and fruits so you can enjoy without wasting them..."
GREAT PRODUCT FOR A GREAT PRICE.
"I get a lot of produce at the grocery, and it's so easy for it to go bad quickly once you get it home. I cook for myself, so the longer the produce can last, the better. I just put one of these sheets in any container of produce I get, or my refrigerated produce drawers or the fruit basket on my counter, and these sheets keep my food fresher longer, no doubt."
"I love the fresh papers and they do their job in extending the life of fruits and veggies. Very easy to use."
These simple sheets keep all my fruits and vegetables fresher longer. I have saved a lot of money using them consistently. I never want "to be without them."
Thanks for all the love, Grommeters - you made our day! :)
