Make Fruit and Veggies Last Longer With Rubbermaid FreshWorks and Giveaway


This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Rubbermaid.


Up until a few years ago, I would rarely eat fruit or veggies, even though eating it every day is recommended.  The reason being is not that I don’t like fruit or vegetables, it’s because of the cost involved and how quickly it all goes bad.  I would buy strawberries and within a few days they would literally grow mold, my lettuce would brown and well, you get the picture.  Over the years I have found ways to make produce last longer but only recently I’ve found the best way to do it, the easiest way to store produce and make it last a long time and now that we have our own little vegetable garden, we often grow too much and FreshWorks by Rubbermaid has made keeping our produce fresh much easier.


FreshWorks by Rubbermaid not only keeps produce fresher for much longer but it reduces waste and saves you money in the long run.

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.**

FreshWorks storage containers use the patented Rubbermaid FreshVentTM technology, this keeps produce fresher up to 80% longer than traditional product pacaging.  By regulating the the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide, the FreshVent technology creates an optimal environment, your produce stays nearly as fresh as the day it was picked. FreshWorks also uses CrispTrayTM to help reduce moisture and any type of spoilage.



I love to store my strawberries, kale, lettuce and other fruits inside Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers and they have 3 different sizes available –

  • Small (2.5 Cups): Ideal for small berries.
  • Medium (6.3 Cups): Perfect for strawberries.
  • Large (17.3 Cups): Optimal for leafy greens.

Last year we grew way too much kale in our vegetable garden and it was way more than I could use in my smoothies so we ended up giving some away, this year whatever I have leftover will be going in my Large FreshWorks container as it’s the perfect size for my kale and prepping it for smoothies.


In case you are wondering, FreshWorks containers are extremely easy to use, just open your produce from store packaging or pick it from your garden then add it to the containers, close the lid don tightly and put it in the fridge.  Super simple.  The lids also last a lifetime, you will never need any replacements and everything is BPA Free, top-shelf dishwasher safe and microwave safe!


I currently have 3 Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers but with spring coming up I am going to need more so my fruit and vegetables last much longer and I am super excited to have found something that works perfect for me!

How to Make Produce Last Longer

    I really hate when strawberries go bad in the containers they come in. I bought 4 lbs a few days ago and some of the berries I looked at last night had to have bad spots cut out.
    I think the FreshWorks containers would help alleviate that problem.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I already love Rubbermaid containers and have been switching all my old ones over to them. I love that these particular ones are better for storing fruit and vegetables. I love having fresh fruit and veggies around, but they don’t always store well and last long. I’d love to be able to keep them fresh longer!

    I love the fact that my produce could last longer. I tend to go overboard when purchasing fresh fruits & veggies, then much of the time it goes to waste because I don’t use it fast enough.

    I love the Fresh Vent technology. I pick berries all summer and after I rinse them they go bad quickly.

    I love that they help produce last longer, because this morning I had to throw out a half-full container of greens because they had gone bad already even though their fresh-by date was 04/20. 🙁
