yes, they do work...........esp. if you'll put a paper towel in them for produce like lettuce and leafy veggies.....to soak up excess moisture

We can get Green Bags at Walgreens here. 20 bags of $9.99.

Thanks, expat, for the paper towel tip. The instructions do say something about keeping moisture at a minimum when using the bags.

I'll stick with ziplock and paper towels.

I have wondered about these bags too. I use ZipLoc with paper towels and don't usually have much of a problem.
