Your fresh food is not fresh. It is alive.

How we store our food is one of the single biggest ways all of us can create or prevent waste. But how often do you think about the materials that you use to store your favorite foods? 

Through the story of Abeego, the game-changing all-natural food wrap that she invented in 2008, Toni Desrosiers shares insights for aspiring environmental entrepreneurs. She tells why the world is falling out of love with plastics, why sliced bread is a terrible idea, and why a block of cheese is a living organism. 

You won’t store your food the same way after listening to this episode!
