Storing produce with Ziploc® brand

April 01, 2015
No one likes coming home to find the the spinach for tonight’s dinner spoiled and leaking all over the fridge. It’s not good for dinner, it’s not good for your fridge and it’s not good for your sanity. Plus it’s a total pain to keep repurchasing produce only to have it spoil. While Ziploc® brand products are great for storing produce, it can be hard to remember what to store in a bag and what to store in a container. So we’ve put together a handy Ziploc® brand bag + container chart to help you avoid the produce-spoiled-dinner-plans. Long live produce!
