Have you ever purchased fruits or veggies but they have gone out of date in a very short time before you could relish in their goodness? Happens all the time to me. That’s why Im so excited about the Lök Fruit Bowl.
As fruits and veggies ripen, they release a gas called ethylene. This controls the texture, color, softening, and more during the ripening process. Yet, if the the fruits and vegetables come into contact with too much ethylene, it will cause them to go back more quickly – hence making them inedible and thrown directly into the compost pile.
However, with Lök Fruit Bowl, we can enjoy our healthy fruits and vegetables much longer. Lök uses an ethylene absorber. Ethylene isn’t so bad however, since it has been shown to contribute to cell division, DNA synthesis and development in meristems of roots. The Lök Fruit Bowl turns around and uses the absorbed ethylene to help grow plant life. So users can grow their own herbs, or plants in the plant pot of the Lök Fruit Bowl. Talk about the circle of life, and a longer time of enjoying your fruits and veggies.
