Do You Use "Green Bags" for Produce?

What do you think of them? Are they worth the price? Would you purchase them again?

  • consumer reports gave them a thumbs down rating about 6 months ago, and stated that with some produce it encouraged rotting. go figure.

  • if your talking about those plastic green bags, i can say it kind of helps bananas, but not much so i would say that it isn't really worth buying...i thought you were talking about the "green" grocery bags that they are trying to replace for the plastic bags....lol

  • waste of money
    I stick to vacuum sealing and freezing if I have too much. And for the bananas, put them in the fridge. The outside turns brown but the inside stays normal and lasts longer, up to a week.

  • I have two only because my stepmom bought them and she seems to love them so she gave me a couple. I haven't really noticed a difference. She had bananas in hers and I don't really buy bananas all that often.

  • I've tried them and they just don't seem to make anything last longer for me. I think they are a waste of money too NotPanicking...every penny counts!

  • I have tried them, with mixed results. They didn't keep the bananas fresher at ALL, but they keep peppers fresh for a really, really long time.
