Food Huggers®

Did you ever want to give your onion a hug? Probably not, but Food Huggers® love onions and they are ready to hug them anytime. In fact, they will hug lemons, apples, eggplants, bananas, tomatoes, and an endless list of needy fruits and vegetables. These colorful reusable silicone wraps can help preserve fruits and vegetables without using plastic wrap, plastic bags, or aluminum foil, thereby keeping them out of landfills.

Food Huggers® were invented by Michelle Ivankovic and Adrienne McNicholas, foodies at heart, whose inspiration was fresh food and whose goal was to help people reduce waste at home.  Oprah magazine called Food Huggers® “equal parts clever and cute.”

From the web site:

“Zero waste starts with little changes. Each new habit we adopt helps us all move closer to a more sustainable world and a healthier environment. Food waste contributes up to 30% of garbage in American landfills. And single-use plastic and foil threaten the environment. Food Huggers dramatically reduce your trash footprint while also saving your food from premature spoiling.”

Since their Kickstarter launch in 2013, they have expanded their line to include Avocado Huggers® and soon, Food Hugger Lids. Their products are sold around the world, helping people develop healthier, sustainable habits in their homes.

Food Huggers® help retain 23% more moisture than food stored in plastic baggies or plastic containers. Keeping this moisture in and keeping bacteria out help extend the time you have to enjoy all the flavor and nutrition that your fruits and veggies can offer. The Huggers are dishwasher, microwave, and freezer safe. They’re made with food-grade silicone and are 100% BPA- and phthalate-free.

Food Huggers. Saving the world’s fruits and vegetables, one half at a time.
