The holiday season is here and the makers of BerryBreeze™ are asking Americans to pay more attention to food waste and the terrible toll it takes on our pocketbooks and the environment. BerryBreeze™ is a new, small, battery-operated device that generates activated oxygen to neutralize ethylene gas that can cause premature ripening of fruits and vegetables. It also kills the microbes that cause produce and food to spoil, eliminates unwanted odors and tastes in the fridge, and extends the life and nutrition of produce and food.
When placed on a refrigerator shelf, BerryBreeze™ keeps food fresh longer giving consumers a chance to eat fresher, cleaner food instead of throwing it away—so none of your delicious holiday dinner goes to waste.

“We need to start treating food with the respect it deserves. As it stands today we are throwing away 40 percent of all the food we produce in America. Food waste is crippling our environment,” said Kevin Brooks, BerryBreeze™ EVP/COO. “According to published reports, 25 percent of all fresh water is wasted on food that is thrown out. Some 300 million barrels of oil are wasted generating food that is not eaten. At a time where we should be reflecting on the good things in our lives, we have to remember that the average American throws away 209 to 254 pounds of food each year. It is simply unsustainable and we have a simple, environmentally friendly solution in BerryBreeze™.”
Brooks says America can move away from the devastating impact of food waste by using BerryBreeze™ to extend the shelf life of food and learning more about “sell by” dates and other manufacturer guidelines. These are intended to be indicators of when it is best to move stock from a store. Instead, millions of Americans use the date as a guideline which indicates spoilage or when it’s time to throw the food out.
While other green indicators seem to be moving in the right direction, it is estimated that food waste has increased some 50 percent in America since 1974 making discarded food the single largest component of waste going into landfills and incinerators. President Obama has cited statistics showing that cutting food waste by 15 percent would save enough food to feed 25 million people.
According to the National Resources Defense Council, U.S. consumers waste roughly 40 percent of all edible food. For the average U.S. household of four, food waste translates into an estimated $1,350 to $2,275 in annual losses. If we wasted 15 percent less food, it would feed 25 million Americans.
BerryBreeze™ offers a patented (US Patent 7,678,040 B2), scientifically proven technology to help slow food waste and save family grocery budget’s thousands of dollars in food waste every year.
Berry Breeze™ is a small, maintenance-free, battery-operated, eco-friendly unit that sits on the top shelf of your refrigerator to promote a clean environment using natural activated oxygen. Activated Oxygen is a natural cleaner found in nature that when produced in sufficient quantities, reduces airborne bacteria, fungi, mildew, mold and viruses that are found in coils of household refrigerators. BerryBreeze™ has been proven by a leading independent laboratory to extend the shelf-life of refrigerator-stored perishable foods.
The award-winning BerryBreeze™ won first place as Best of Show at the New Living Expo and placed among the top five in the New Products Category at the Go Green Expo. The BerryBreeze™ priced at $49.95, will keep food fresh longer, and pay for itself within a month. To help stop fresh food waste, please join the revolution at http://www.berrybreeze.com.
