cleaner environment inside the refrigerator.
On some models, your refrigerator's accessory packet includes

the air filter is already installed at the factory.

Install Produce Preserver
(on some models)
The produce preserver absorbs ethylene, to slow the ripening
process of many produce items. As a result, certain produce
items will stay fresh longer.
Ethylene production and sensitivity varies depending on the type
of fruit or vegetable. To preserve freshness, it is best to separate
produce with sensitivity to ethylene from fruits that produce
moderate to high amounts of ethylene.
