How To Keep Produce Fresh Longer: Rubbermaid FreshWorks

“This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Rubbermaid.”

Our household goes through a lot of produce. I like to purchase a variety of things so that we have it to cook with or snack on. My son loves strawberries and pineapple and I prefer melon, but we both love a good salad. My husband likes produce when it’s fried or smothered in something to disguise the taste. We have lots of farm animals that will eat produce that has started to go bad, but to me that’s just really expensive chicken food. I’ve tried hard to tame our grocery budget; I’ll have to cut back on work when our new baby arrives this summer and work has already been slow due to pregnancy complications, so money is tight. If I can use produce before it spoils, I can save money on our food budget. The new Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers can help keep produce fresher, longer, and I’m going to share how they work today. You can also enter to win a three piece set of Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers at the end of this post.

How to keep produce fresh longer

I was spending at least $150 per week to feed our family of three. I knew I couldn’t count on any increase in income before the arrival of our new baby, and I really needed to figure out how to stretch that budget. Extending the shelf life of the produce that I purchase, allows us to waste less and spend less.

How does Rubbermaid FreshWorks work? Rubbermaid created FreshVent™ technology which was found to keep produce fresh for 80% longer*. FreshVent™ creates a better environment for produce than standard containers by regulating the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide. Each container has a FreshTray™ in the bottom to help decrease moisture and spillage.

**Based on strawberries in FreshWorks™ containers vs. store packaging. Results may vary depending upon produce and use.

The Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers are available in three sizes:

  • 2.5 cup Small size
  • 6.3 cup Medium size
  • 17.3 cup Large size

Did you know that Americans waste roughly $24 billion in produce each year**? Do you think your household wastes $192 per year? I think that it’s likely that we do and I would like to prevent it. Rubbermaid FreshWorks is an inexpensive investment to help you save on your budget.

It will also help me store out homegrown produce longer; I’m already dreaming for homegrown heirloom tomatoes and green beans.

Rubbermaid FreshWorks Produce Saver is super simple to use. You just need to move the produce from the store bought produce containers and into the FreshWorks containers before you refrigerate. The Rubbermaid FreshVent lid filter lasts a lifetime, so no replacement needed. Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers are BPA-free, and microwave and top-shelf dishwasher safe.

    I buy lettuce more than anything else. I have some loose leaf growing in my garden and these would be great containers to keep it longer.
