1) Medical-grade silicone
2) Our proprietary blend of antimicrobial minerals
Sorry, we know that’s not very informative! The exact blend we bake into the mats is our trade secret.
Produce Mate is 100% food safe and ready to use right out of the package. Plus, silicone is a long-lasting and durable material. We’re fighting throw-away culture by building products that last.
Our materials are special and don’t last forever, they may degrade over time, but you can expect a minimum of two years!
There are a few things you can do to maximize the effectiveness of your Produce Mate:
1) Put it in the refrigerator rather than on the counter top. The counter top works as well, but the contained environment of your crisper drawer helps.
2) You’d be doing your produce a huge favor by separating ethylene absorbers and emitters.

Yes! Those lines running across the mat were designed specifically with you in mind. Feel free to cut, fold and bend your Produce Mate to your hearts content.
DISCLAIMER: You MAY see worse results from a smaller mat (we’re still testing this!)
Unfortunately Produce Mate cannot be tossed into your recycle bin.
Instead, we’re implementing a send-back upcycle program. Just ship us your mat and we’ll find a good way to upcycle or reuse the mat!
Firstly, we try to never double-package our mats. Our mailers are our packaging!
They are made of 100% recycled paperboard – 90% of which is post-consumer recycled content. Each mailer is fully recyclable and will even naturally biodegrade over time!
