Chlorophyll (the green pigment found in leafy greens) can actually keep your Veggie Pod alive longer, up to 48 hours. Also, the lemon, ginger and mint have preservative properties which will support the freshness. However, GreenSky only recommends keeping your unopened Veggie Pod in the fridge for up to 24 hours to ensure maximum freshness, nutrition and taste.
Food safety and quality is our priority. Sustainability opportunities are being developed with the possibility to up-cycle the pod cups for clothing manufacturing.
GreenSky has chosen to work with Bonson from New Zealand who provide only sustainable and environmentally friendly range of recyclable and biodegradable products.
