Eighty billion pounds of food is wasted in the US annually, acting as the leading landfill contributor. Looking to find a solution that will keep our food in the fridge and out of the trash, rocket scientist Bill Birgen used his knowledge of thermodynamics to create SAVRPak. When the SAVRPak patch is placed inside of a food storage container, it removes moisture from the air and eliminates condensation, preserving the food’s crispness and quality and keeping our food fresher longer.

A clean bathroom means waste: wasted time, wasted water and wasted bottles of cleaning chemicals. Originally developed for the one billion people in the world who don’t have access to toilets and the four billion who don’t have access to clean sanitation, spotLESS Materials uses a patent-pending technology that repels liquid, bacteria, and sludge with minimal water usage. spotLESS is a non-stick coating that leaves a slippery barrier on surfaces, resulting in 99% less surface and 90% less water needed to clean these surfaces.
