My house is wasteful. I never realized how much food we throw out until I was going through the grocery list with my husband and he was letting me know which of those things go bad in the fridge. His job is the trash so every Tuesday he goes through the fridge for expired food and I had no idea that so much wasn’t getting eaten. I just assumed my teenager was eating all that stuff honestly. We haven’t had a salad last a week in our house. That is so weird to me. I guess maybe my fridge is too cold? Or not cold enough? I have no idea but fruits and veggies seem to go bad a lot at my house. That is why I have been excited to try Rubbermaid FreshWorks Storage containers.
FreshWorks is a food storage container that uses patented FreshVentTM technology to keep produce fresher up to 80% longer* than traditional produce packaging. It uses a revolutionary built-in FreshVent™ lid, which naturally regulates the flow of oxygen and CO2, in and out of the container to create the optimal environment so produce stays nearly as fresh as the day it was picked. The CrispTrayTM at the bottom elevates produce away from moisture and promotes proper airflow to help reduce spoilage. That sounds like the perfect thing for us since it keeps the veggies fresh and the lettuce dry.
It is available now in six sizes to hold all types of produce:
- Lare Square (11.1 Cups): Perfect for Tomatoes
- Long Rectangle (8.4 Cups): Great for asparagus or zucchini
- Small Rectangle (4.0 Cups): Will keep your green beans fresh.
- Small (2.5 Cups): Ideal for small berries.
- Medium (6.3 Cups): Perfect for strawberries.
- Large (17.3 Cups): Optimal for leafy greens.
I tried it with our spinach salad last week and I can report that it still looks fresh today. I even ate some of it for lunch today. Of course I add so much cheese, croutons, and tomatoes to my salad to make them much less healthy but I felt pretty good that I don’t have to throw another bag of salad away. Or another sliced cantelope. I am sure my husband is going to appreciate these way more than me though. He was the one picking up slimy veggies out of the bottom of the crisper tray of the fridge. I just really love Rubbermaid products in general so these are going to be added to my collection and help me waste less! Plus they are dishwasher safe which makes my life even easier!
