Kiwis Are Ripening / sustainable

Kiwis Are Ripening

We often receive a box of unripe inedible kiwis after we buy
them, But after a few weeks, the kiwis will ripen in large
quantities in a short period of time, The ripened kiwis have a
short best before date , If we don’t finish them in time , they will
be too lateto eat and lead to waste.

This product is made of matching rotten kiwis and paper
fibers. It uses the principle of ethylene ripening to make kiwis
ripen in order and reduce waste.
