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?
Now I use these things: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005W6DRNY
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.

I'm not crunchy. I'm evidence-based.
