What’s on Your Plate?
Here’s some serious food for thought: that apple you just threw in your bag this morning? It may have been sprayed with up to 53 different pesticides, and then waxed. (Not to mention the fact that it may have traveled around 1,500 miles and touched 20 sets of hands before it even reached your fridge.) Dirty food happens — so much so that, according to the CDC, each year, about 1 in 6 people in the U.S. gets sick from eating contaminated food. Thanks to the efforts of Mareya Ibrahim and her dad Dr. Shawki Ibrahim, though, that stat it will hopefully decrease soon. That’s because the father-and-daughter team founded Eat Cleaner, the only all-natural, tasteless and odorless food cleaning system for produce, seafood, and poultry.
Unlike washing with just water, Eat Cleaner can safely lift wax, pesticide residue, and bacteria-carrying dirt from commercially and organically grown produce, as well as surface debris from seafood and poultry. We’re especially fond of its Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Spray ($10 for two) and its Grab-n-Go Biodegradable Wipes ($11.50), which are perfect when you’re out and about. (Just throw it in your purse next to that now-cleaner apple…)
