If I want to make fresh green juice and take it with me for later, what do I put it in and how long will it keep good?

It is best to have it immediatly as it begins to oxidise immediatly. If you have to store it put it in a container that will have the least possible amount of air in it and an airtight seal.
I would suggest (and welcome contridiction) that if it does not come to the top of the container you add more liquid or water to bring it to the top. Keep the air out.

If I want to make fresh green juice and take it with me for later, what do I put it in and how long will it keep good?I use unbreakable stainless steel thermos bottles, like the ones Starbucks sells for tea and coffee. I've got several sizes that I found on sale at discount places like TJMaxx to keep the cost down ($5-15 vs $20 - 30 at Starbucks). I pick one the size I wish to use, take the top off, and put it in the freezer to chill while I make the juice. That will keep a green juice fresh all day.
If you don't have a thermos, put the juice in whatever container you have, then put some ice cubes in a ziploc bag and put them in with the juice. That will keep the juice cool without diluting it.

if you put lemon in your green drink that will keep it fresh longer to.
I make them and freeze immediately, drink as it thaws, that keeps it longer too.
