We go through a lot of fresh produce in my house. Yes, of course we eat produce like it;s going out of style. That’s a given when you’ve got 7 people living in one house.

So how does produce stay fresher?
The Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers uses patented FreshVentTM technology to keep produce fresher up to 80% longer* than traditional produce packaging. The built-in FreshVent™ lid naturally regulates the flow of oxygen and CO2, creating the optimal environment for produce to stay fresh because the oxygen and CO2 flow in and out of the container helping it to stay 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. Best of all, they are BPA-free, dishwasher safe and also made in the USA!
