  • Food innovation company StixFresh has created stickers that claim to keep fruit fresh for up to 14 days longer.
  • According to a video from StixFresh, the 100% natural product is made of specially sourced beeswax and other natural ingredients to increase a fruit’s shelf life, retaining its moisture and firmness.
  • Simply peel and place a sticker on your desired fruit to help keep it fresh; it works on apples, pears, avocados, dragon fruits, kiwis, mangoes, oranges, and other citrus fruits, according to StixFresh.
  • The product claims to be an easy method to combat food waste, which costs the average US household $US1,800 each year, according to StixFresh.
