Rubbermaid FreshWorks Keeps Your Produce Fresher Longer

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Rubbermaid®.


My oldest daughter is Vegan, so I buy a lot of produce. I don’t like going to the store multiple times a week, so I buy enough to last a week. With fresh produce, you hate for it to go bad. Sometimes that happens fast, but there are ways to prevent that from happening. Rubbermaid FreshWorks is one of those tools to help keep everything fresh.



When I say Rubbermaid FreshWorks keeps your products fresh longer, i’m not just talking about a day or so. I’m talking up to 80% longer*.  “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.” I love storage containers for my left overs, but I have never seen anything like this type of product. I have a “crip drawer” in my fridge and Rubbermaid has worked so much better.


Cilantro is something we always have in the fridge. I cook with it a lot, so I want to make sure it’s always fresh and nothing is brown or wilting. The small rectangle size was perfect to store a bundle or two at a time. Here is the list of the available sizes:




  • Large 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.
One tip I learned from Rubbermaid is to not cut or rinse the produce before putting it into the FreshWorks container (of course wash before eating).
The large square one is great for mango's or other larger fruits (another item that is a staple for us). I use the long rectangle container for cucumbers. It’s just the right length for them and you can fit a few depending on their size.
Other features include:
  • Reduces Waste: Many people find that their produce has spoiled after just a few days, leaving them no choice but to throw it away. FreshWorks extends the life of your produce, so you can eat your produce before it goes to waste.
  • Saves Money:  As a result of throwing away fresh produce, Americans waste $24 billion worth of produce every year, which is the equivalent of $192 per household.**  
  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Made in the USA of global components, BPA-free.


Where can you buy these? Of course you can right from Rubbermaid’s site. Or you can shop at some of their retail partners like meijer, Target, Amazon, Kroger, Walmart and also Bed Bath & Beyond. It’s the holiday season soon, lots of cooking being done. Make sure you are prepared with fresh produce.

  11. Would love to use a set of these so salad makings are as crisp and fresh as the day they were picked. Love the air rotation idea and like most people we end up going to the store for produce at least a couple of times a month. Being able to go once a week would be great. No more waste

  27. Keeping my fruit fresh longer means I won’t end up throwing it away! I eat a lot of produce.Each one has a green plastic perforated tray at the base that raises the produce above any liquid that settles on the bottom and allows for air flow.
