BEWARE OF CHEAP IMITATIONS
Evert USA tested 15 would-be competitor products.
Those made in China, Korea and Taiwan have not been made from food grade film.
They contained various chemicals NOT ADVISED FOR FOOD CONTACT.
Two of them actually advertised Ethylene oxide, a known cause of cancer. Need we say more?
When purchasing any food storage 'green' bags look for the “Made in USA” seal
HOW THEY WORK
Scientists were searching for ways to prolong the freshness of produce for Antarctic exploration.
In their research, they became aware of a region in Japan that had been known for thousands of years
for storing produce for extended periods of time.
Farmers in the region had been warehousing produce in mountain caves with amazing results.
The caves were dark, consistently cool, dry and, it was discovered, the caves themselves were in a
mountain of clay called oya.
The oya absorbed the ethylene gas that the produce gave off as it matured.
Evert-fresh Bags combine space age technology for preserving produce with ancient knowledge
All that, in a simple, green bag.
