Finally, a sustainable way to keep that other half of the avocado or fruit you’re eating fresh

Food Huggers

A more sustainable way to keep your unfinished fruits and vegetables fresh

If you love avocados — in salads, on toast, on tacos or any other way — you know the age-old challenge: You use half an avocado and you need to store the other half to use later, but if you put it in a plastic bag or storage container in the fridge, it's very likely to turn brown before you can use it up. What's an avo lover to do?

Enter Food Huggers, a sustainable food storage company with a new approach: silicone sleeves that wrap around the unused portions of avocados and other fruits and vegetables, keeping them airtight and fresh until you can use them up. They also make "huggers" for butter and cheese, plus lids for bowls, produce bags and other sustainable food storage solutions.

Best of all, this is a way to keep unfinished fruits and vegetables fresh without single-use plastics or papers that get thrown away after you're done with them.
