Story Behind the Invention

Inventor Nadine Ross of Dublin, CA has created an innovative new space-saving food container.

Cartons provide safe storage for food items around the kitchen. However, when items are removed from the carton, these cartons do not reduce in size. Nadine would have a half gallon of ice cream in her freezer and when she would open it, there would only be 2 inches of ice cream left. This was very frustrating to her. She then started thinking of a way the ice cream carton could be collapsible or split apart. Not only would this make more room in her freezer, but it would also indicate that there was not much ice cream left. Nadine knew this idea could be applied to other types of cartons that take up a lot of space like cottage cheese, oatmeal, or potato chips. Other industries besides the food industry could even benefit from a collapsible container. With this in mind, she was inspired to develop a new food container called Tear 'n Save Space!

After placing the "Tear 'n Save" strip on a carton or container, you can now reduce its size by removing the top section and refitting the lid to the smaller lower section of the container. This will not only reduce space in your fridge, freezer, or cabinet, but it also will give a quick visual signal of how much product is left, so you will know exactly when it is time to restock! In addition, the smaller carton reduces the airspace that comes in contact with the product inside, which may contribute to freshness and preservability.
