Currently raising finances as a Kickstarter project, the Green Heart could help extend the life of your produce by three more days. Consisting of a small plastic heart, the little box contains a packet of potassium crystals which are supposed to absorb the gas released by fruits and vegetables as they ripen (and later, spoil). This small device will also hopefully help lower your household food waste. As Americans throw out 35 billion tons of food in a year, this small idea could make a big impact.

The refillable Green Heart takes the potassium packets florists use to another level by making them easier to use at home. The spill-free container allows you to throw it in with your food without worrying about a mess. It also has patent-pending child safety tabs so you won't have to worry about little ones getting into them or digesting chemicals either.
