Fruitree puts an end to rotting fruit

One of my many vicious circles goes like this...
1) Decide to eat healthy.
2) Buy lots of fruit and other healthy foods.
3) Stick fruit in a big bowl on the kitchen table.
4) In a moment of clutter, set the bowl aside. Forget all about it.
5) Several days later, follow the swarm of fruit flies back to the forgotten bowl, now filled with a sickly sweet rotting goo that used to be bananas, oranges, peaches, and mangos.

One of the winners of a recent kitchen design contest may be just the thing for people like me. Fruitree is a concept piece designed to solve the out of sight, out of mind problem with fruit that goes uneaten and spoils. Fruitree is mounted on a wall, so the fruit is right in front of your eyes. Circulating air is pushed throughout the Fruitree, keeping the fruit fresh longer. Fruitree was designed by Chia Shee Loh, Antonietta Fortunato and Elena Godenzi.
