Alexandra commented on How To "Keep Fresh" Sign

I think this is a great idea! I like that something as simple as a sign could help people prevent food waste.  Something to think of, is that many people may not focus on how to store vegetables while shopping, because like Kyla mentioned, many individuals are in a rush at the supermarket. I think the survey idea is a good way to see if this would benefit people, but I suggest not only going to a farmers market, but other indoor supermarkets because people who shop at farmers markets and those who shop at supermarkets may have different opinions on how their produce is handled and may care more or less about the quality of their goods. A question I have is how do you plan to convince supermarkets to put these signs in their stores--many supermarkets may benefit in profit by having people needing to constantly repurchase produce due to their short shelf life. Is there another, more effective way you can spread information about storing produce to people?
