A Note of Thanks, and an Exciting Update!

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." -Margaret Mead
 
Friends of Fenugreen,
There seems to be no better way to wrap up a week of fresh food & gratitude than to write to you, our earliest supporters. Since we started out at a stall on the side of the road (see below for a throwback photo!), we've been amazed by the support of this community.
Thank you for believing in us. Today, we're grateful to be able to "pay it forward." We're thrilled to announce The Fresh Prize: a $15,000 award for simple ideas making our world a better place. (Click to learn more.)

We're also excited to launch a brand new way to give back this season - the Holiday FreshCard - a uniquely useful card made of FreshPaper, inspired by one of our first customers who mailed FreshPaper across the country in her holiday cards... (Thanks, Leora!)

Printed with edible ink, this remarkable FreshCard can simply be dropped in a fridge drawer or fruit basket to keep fruits & veggies fresh for longer! For every FreshCard purchased, we'll donate an equivalent amount of FreshPaper to those in need. One by one, sheet by sheet, we’re getting closer to Fresh for All.


Warmly, 


The Fenugreen Team

FreshPaper Wins INDEX Award - World's Largest Prize for Design

Last night, FreshPaper won the INDEX Award - the world's largest prize for design, presented by Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess of Denmark. We're still in shock.

To all of you, our earliest supporters, who first took a leap of faith, believed in this simple idea, and made this possible - thank you. Your support has meant everything to us.

The INDEX Award ceremony will be broadcast on CNN International at 1pm and 4pm EST every day this week. (We'll be watching to make sure this actually happened.)
