We often don’t give much thought to the pesky little stickers affixed to our produce, quickly just pulling them off and flicking them from our fingertips into a trashcan. But considering the millions of apples, pears and other produce they are tacked to, the waste adds up. In response, Scott Amron has come up with a much better alternative with his vanishing Fruitwash Labels that dissolve into an organic, fruit-cleansing produce wash that helps remove wax, pesticides, dirt and bacteria. The labels are also as practical as their non-dissolving counterparts, displaying market Price Look-Up (PLU) codes and origin. Quite ingenious if you ask us. If you’re looking for an investment opportunity, Amron is currently selling a 10% stake in the Fruitwash Label Intellectual Property (patents).
