"Does It Work?": Green Bags

Green Bags claim all fruits and vegetables stay fresh longer, but does it work?

You get 10 large bags and 10 mediums. The Green Bags contain natural minerals that are supposed to absorb and remove ethylene gases that if left to do their thing, cause deterioration. We pack the fruit and it should last for 2 weeks.

None of it looks too bad on first inspection. Until we start opening some of this stuff up. Tomatoes first. They were in the regular produce bag. And we find these are getting a little soft. When we open the Green Bag they were just like day one. Nice, firm...no spots. 

Next, we checked the strawberries in the regular produce bag. Nobody's eating these. How did the Green Bag strawberries fare? The Green Bag strawberries did better than the others, but not perfection.

Does it work? What a great invention! We give the Green Bags a Yes.
