We’re excited to introduce our Fourth Product: Shelfy. It’s a smart device that will make your food last longer, reduce bacterial load and remove bad odors from your refrigerator. A small and compact purifier that allows your food to last up to 12 days longer in the refrigerator. A product designed to fight food waste and save money for families at an incredibly discounted low price, available only on Kickstarter.
Food waste is one of the biggest and most underestimated problems of our time. If food loss and waste were a country, it would be the third biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions. Food waste also burdens waste management systems, exacerbates food insecurity, making it a major contributor to the three planetary crises of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution.
A family spends on average almost $2,000 a year on food that is sure to be thrown away and wasted. But this isn’t the only problem! Studies show that 1 out of 2 refrigerators have an above average proliferation of mold and bacteria, this can cause contamination and possible risks to our health.
Shelfy is a smart purifier that eliminates bad odors, bacteria and extends the shelf life of your food. Thanks to its photocatalytic technology – Vitesy’s flagship – you can say goodbye to bad odors and spoiled vegetables in the back of your refrigerator!
Shelfy is the solution to food waste because your food will last longer in the refrigerator and will allow you to save thousands of dollars a year!
