Rubbermaid Square Food Storage Containers

When it comes to containers, there are always two different shapes involved: round and square. So is with food container. Rubbermaid, the well-known brand for containers, also has two types of food containers. One is round food containers, which we discussed here, and the other one is square food containers.

Why two different shapes? And which one to choose for your food products?

It’s just a matter of preference. Some people like round shape better, and some others like square. One thing for sure though, when you choose the square shape, you’ll most likely be able to save space. Most racks, shelves, fridges are in rectangular or square design. Therefore when you use square containers, you might be able to stack more containers than when you do with the round ones.

These square food containers in question are especially awesome because of the two different measurements they have on the sides of the containers. One side has the quart measurement in red and the opposite side has the liter measurement in blue. This is very convenient for you who need to know the exact volume of your stored goods.

NSF-certified, the Rubbermaid square food storage containers comply with HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) guidelines.

You can choose between square food containers in clear polycarbonate and those in white polyethylene. The clear containers are break resistant and will give you better visibility of the content inside. The white polyethylene containers are strong and durable. Both types have handles for easy carrying and drain holes for proper washing and drying.

Lids
Lids are sold separately. These lids are of quality snap-tight fit kind which reduce leakage, help prevent spoilage and limit cross contamination. Though tight fit, the lids are easy to remove, thanks to the pull tab on one corner.

Sizes are available from 2 Quart to 22 Quart for both polycarbonate and polyethylene containers. Please check the full list here. If you have any question, don’t hesitate to contact us for inquiries.

Go Green with Reusable Plastic

They say that plastic is one of the must-be-avoided things to use in daily life. More and more people are taught to avoid buying plastic bags, etc. But what we should remember is that the role of plastic is crucial, too. We see it in eyeglasses, windows, jars, other plastic containers and many more. The reason why it is kept being used is because of its flexibility, and durability. Your plastic eyeglasses don’t easily break when you accidently drop them. The same thing with your plastic jars. So how can we go green with plastic while still using it?

The idea of recycling is not only taking the non-biodegradable things to the recycling company. Recycling can also mean reusing the things until we cannot use them anymore. Remember, it is not cheap to recycle things. So why not reusing the plastics we use every day? That way, we won’t have to buy more (plastic) stuffs and we still have our life in order. Below are some of the plastic things that you can reuse.
Plastic container – like their name, are containers. You don’t normally throw away containers after using them once. So yes, plastic containers are definitely one of those that you can keep for a long, long time. You just need to remember which plastic containers are food grade and are used only for containing foods. Never mix them up with containing other goods, since they will no longer be food grade anymore.

Plastic jars – there are numerous versatile uses of plastic jars. From containing cookies, grains, coffee, tea and sugar to containing small stationary stuffs that can fit the jars. It can also double function as a vase.

Plastic buckets or pails – you see them as the storing place for paints and grains. But you can also turn them into gardening pots, kids’ toys storage as well as camping seats or cat feeders.

Plastic drums or barrels – plastic drums are used by some due to its strength and durability. When not needed anymore, they can still be reused as rain water barrels.

When environmentalists ask us to reduce the use of plastic goods, it means to reduce throwing them away right after we use them the first time. By reusing plastic things, we already contribute to a better environment.
