BluApple Review & 3 Giveaways -- ENDED




We eat a lot of fruits and vegetables at our house. Because we eat them daily, so we actually buy large quantities of them from places like Costco. The problem we have is that sometimes the fruits and vegetables go bad before we can finish them, so BluApple is the prefect solution for us.
Ethylene gas is given off naturally by fruits and vegetables as a signaling mechanism in order to coordinate uniform ripening. However, once concentrated in your refrigerator or other storage areas, the presence of ethylene gas continues to speed up ripening and hasten spoilage. The BluApple is designed to provide effective ethylene gas absorption for three months in a typical home refrigerator produce bin or storage container. The active ingredient does not "wear out", but continues to absorb ethylene until it has reached its capacity.
We received a packge of 2 BluApple to review, so I put one with the fruits on the counter top and I placed the other one in the refrigerator with our other fruits and vegetables. I was surprised to see that our fruits do seem to last longer. The BluApple is also cute to look at. Because it is such an odd color, there is no mistaken it for a real fruit and I don't have to worry about kids accidentally grabbing for it.

If you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables like we do, I recommend giving these a try. You can place an order on the BluApple website.

Many thanks to BluApple. The company has generously offered 3 packs of BluApple as giveaway prizes to 3 of my readers (US residents only please, each winner will receive 1 pack of BluApple).

"Bluapple™ will aggressively absorb ethylene gas from any environment it is placed in and will help protect produce in a fruit bowl or any non-refrigerated area. It works best if it is used in a closed environment where it can vacuum all the ethylene molecules from the entire space."

The Bluapple Refill comes with enough active ingredient packets for a full year of protection for two bluapples. Be sure to open the used packets and add the contents to your houseplants - it's great fertilizer!

I thought that was really nifty... fertilizer for plants afterwards!

I follow you and I love that the company tells you to reuse your granules. When it is time to replace the packet, don't throw the spent zeolite granules away! We recommend that you put the spent zeolite granules in your houseplants or in your garden. The zeolite granules are a natural soil and the residual MnO2 provides trace minerals to the soil.
