Verona, KY, April 04, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Sun Sugar Farms announced today the official launch of their latest grocery shopping system especially designed for quick trips to the store: the Convenience CRESBI Crate. CRESBI is an acronym for Collapsible Reusable Environmentally-friendly Stackable Box Idea. Using a crate or “box” instead of a bag is healthier in several ways because it:
1. Minimizes your contact with germs – carrying your own crate into a store helps you avoid using the store’s basket or wasting wipes.
2. Minimizes multiple handling of your products – putting barcodes up as you place items into your crate allows a checker to scan the products in the crate without removing them. Since items are already in the final containment there is no need for a bagger, saving time.
3. Minimizes any risk from bacteria - CRESBI crates are dishwasher safe, so any bacteria risk from meat, poultry or produce leaks is removed in a dishwasher’s ultra-high heat.
“The Convenience CRESBI is the perfect eco-alternative to the store’s basket for a quick trip to the grocery, hardware store, or greenhouse,” explains Linda Fritz, CRESBI crate creator and owner of Sun Sugar Farms. “Not only do you now have your own similar size basket to shop with that only you are touching, it’s also healthy for the environment since a single crate can replace up to six plastic bags. Additionally it’s healthy for your wallet -- you’re less likely to have your products rolling around getting bruised and crushed and a CRESBI crate will far outlast any reusable bag.”
Although it was financially prohibitive to manufacture the crates in U.S.A., all other parts of the CRESBI® crate systems are made in America. Fritz’s company also sells other reusable green products like dishwasher-safe Eco-Takeout® To-Go Boxes and Bunch Bags® Produce Bags from their website www.sunsugarfarms.com. A portion of sales of some of the products also go to charities.
