Green bags you have probably seen the commercials advertising them and question if they work or not. I know that when I saw the green bag commercial I was always curious if they worked or not, but I wasn’t about to purchase them off of the television. However, when I saw the green bags in the grocery store one day I decided to give them a chance to see if they worked or not. So I thought I would try the green bags out and compare how the green bags worked versus not using any storage backs or my normal storage bags.
The green bags you will find out that you need to read the box to make sure that you understand that if they start to get moisture you have to dry them out with a paper towel. However, that is a minor problem that you will encounter. I know that my main problem with the green bags as well as my normal bags was putting some of my produce into the bags. I know one of my hardest things to get in the green bags was the bananas.
While the bananas were difficult to put into the green bag the storage outside of the green bags was easy because I just had to put them in the hanging basket. However, though I knew that the size of banana batch that I got was quite large so I would have plenty of time to see if the green bags would do a better job at keeping them fresh longer.
After a week of being outside of any storage the bananas that I had not put into storage were starting to brown, but the ones inside the green bags as long as I wiped the moisture out of the green bags were still fresh and hadn’t even browned. The bananas inside of the green bags lasted almost a month before they were fully eaten, but they were still fresh a year later.
Now while I had broccoli inside the green bag I also had a head of broccoli inside of the stores bags that they provide. The green bags broccoli head was the last one that I used and it was close to two weeks old when I used it and it was still as fresh as the day I bought the broccoli. However, like with the bananas I did have to wipe out the bag. The other broccoli was starting to go bad in my refrigerator when I used it after about a week.
While some people may doubt if the green bags work I know that they do work and saved me quite a bit of money on my produce purchases for the month. However, when I do not use the green bags I am typically having to compost most of my produce before it gets used. So if you are trying to save money on your produce, but do not want to go to the store all the time I know that the green bags worked for me and they have definitely helped me save money.
