Weapons of Choice: Rubbermaid FreshWorks
Featuring a built-in lid filter and an elevated base, FreshWorks food storage containers keep your produce fresher for longer.
While food freshness may not seem like a particularly sexy topic, it can translate into some substantial time and cost savings. It can mean fewer trips to the grocery store to restock on produce, as well as less money wasted on fruits and veggies that end up going bad before you get a chance to eat them. On a larger scale, minimizing the spoiled produce we throw away also reduces our contribution to the growing problem of food wastage.
Rubbermaid FreshWorks food storage containers promise to keep your fruits and veggies fresh up to 80% longer than standard store packaging. The lids have a built-in filter that regulates the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide in and out of the container, creating an ideal environment for the produce inside. The container bottoms include a CrispTray, which elevates the produce away from any moisture pooling at the base, further helping to slow spoilage.
FreshWorks containers come in three different sizes, ranging from small (which can hold around 2.5 cups of produce) to large (which can hold about 17 cups). They stack easily on top of one another in your fridge, plus they’re also dishwasher and microwave safe.
