HOW TO USE
Produce should be DRY before placing in bag.
Simply place fresh produce in bags and wash/rinse produce
as usual before use. If storing washed produce, be sure to dry
thoroughly before inserting in bag.
Use one bag for each type of produce. For instance, use a bag for apples, another one for lettuce, another one for pears, etc. Even cut flowers can be preserved longer by placing arrangement in bag or pulling bag over top of vase.
Fold over the top of the bag---do not use twist-ties as they make holes.
THE STORY BEHIND THE BAGS
Scientists involved in Antarctic exploration were searching for ways to prolong the freshness of produce. During their research, they found a region in Japan where for thousands of years farmers have been storing produce in mountain caves with amazing results.
The caves were dark, consistently cool, and dry. But it was discovered that the key to the remarkable preserving properties of the caves was a clay called "oya," and the cave mountain was made of it. The oya absorbed the ethylene gas that produce gives off as it matures. Green Bags combine ancient knowledge thousands of years old with space age technology for preserving produce.

I tried these with great skepticism and must admit to being pleasantly surprised. These do work. I tried them with zucchini flowers which would normally go bad within a day and they lasted several days allowing me to harvest enough for a meal. These bags are also great with strawberries and other perishable fruits and veggies. I would definitely recommend them.
I cannot say enough good things about this product. I have been using these bags for many years. They work!
I just love Debbie Meyers green bags. They are the best for storing fresh produce....lunch meats and cheese. I haven't tried the ones for bread yet, but I'm
sure they will prove good also.
These really do work, just make sure to seal tightly and don't leave too much air in the bags. I can buy more greens etc. at the market and have them fresh all week long!
I've been an avid fan of Debbie Meyer Green Bags since they first became available. Her products have become staples in my kitchen. Bananas don't ripen overnight when placed in a green bag and the fruit in my refrigerator lasts longer. When I use the Debbie Meyer vegetable containers
all my veggies stay crisp much longer than they normally would. Shirley, Seminole, FL

these bags work really well for bread but not so much for fruit (bananas) you have to leave out of fridge .. moisture collected in the bag and I had to take the bananas out ..i store my bread in the fridge so it works well
