We’ve all done it – you purchase a bunch of fresh fruits and veggies, only to lose track of the time and find them languishing in the back of the crisper, covered in a layer of fuzz. This one simple gadget could change that by extending the life of your produce. Environmentally friendly, safe and kind of adorable, the Green Heart is so simple, it’s genius. It’s filled with potassium, which absorbs all of the gasses that cause your produce to rot, extending the life and nutrition of your food. The Green Hearts is on Kickstarter right now, and early adopters can get 2 hearts with a six month supply for $9, which practically pays for itself in saved fruit alone in no time.
