I'm looking for a way to keep my produce fresh so I don't toss so much out. I've seen something called "green bags" that are supposed to keep produce fresh for much longer than usual. Anyone tried them? Do they work well?

I have never personally used them but a friend of mine swears by them. She says they definitely work and work great.

I used them in the past and they worked okay but the maintenance was kind of a pain. I wanted to reuse them so that meant washing them out and I was never sure if the washing took away from their effectiveness.

Now I use these things:

They work really well, last for three months at a time and I just toss one in each fridge bin and the counter fruit bowl.

I haven't conducted a methodical test but I think they work. They last for a while. My husband's family likes to give practical gifts and we have been using the same Green Bags we got for Christmas a few years ago off and on for quite some time.

For green leafies I wash and spin dry the day I buy them, then store in a Pyrex or Tupperware with a paper towel in the bottom.  Lettuce stays good enough for green salad up to 3 weeks that way.
