Green Bags storage?

Has anyone given these a try yet?

It's got sound and vid, so you may want to adjust your volume.

I would love to get thirty days out of produce in my fridge, since the trips to town are not as frequent as they used to be

I've been wondering about them also....
I'd LOVE not to shop every week just to fill the produce drawer!!!

Never heard of them, but if they work as promised I'd definitely be interested. Like, pacanis, I don't get to the store except every 2 weeks or more. It would definitely help if I could get the produce to last longer. I would also like to be able to buy a greater variety. I'd be interested in hearing from those folks who have had some experience with the green bags.

I have a friend who uses them, and he thinks they're great. He says produce lasts a lot longer in them.

Well that's certainly a positive endorsement.

While they seem kinda pricey for what they are, like mentioned, if you can save some trips into the store (I haven't had fresh produce in two weeks!) and the stuff you buy lasts longer.
Yahoo!

The ad claims a bag can be used 10 times, so that would be 200 uses for $17. I am considering ordering some. We waste a lot of produce.

Hmmmmm. Considering. Especially if they can be used multiple times. I've found a way to get xxxxxxx uses out of my HandiVac bags. Maybe I can do the same with the green bags.

Anyone who is considering ordering these bags may wish to look at the reviews on Amazon and Chowhound. I find the extreme divergence of opinion fascinating.

Huh. Never saw two opnions on something before.....

Thanks for the link, Pete. That is odd. From absolutely loving them to absolutely hating them.

So...... who here is going to pull the trigger and give them the 'ol DC try?
