Does Debbie Meyer Green Bags Really Work?

With the Debbie Meyer Green Bags they claim that fruit and vegetable life can be prolonged by as long as 10 days.  Even flowers stay fresher, longer with Debbie Meyer Green Bags, they claim.  These food storage bags are useful also for cut flowers and herbs by preventing excess moisture buildup and they also help to reduce vitamin loss by 50%.  The bags are reusable 10 times each.  With the Debbie Meyer Green Bags there is no need to make use of chemicals on homegrown fruits and veggies.  How do the Green Bags work?  Fruits, vegetables and flowers normally release ethylene gas while ripening after harvesting and picking.  This same gas accelerates ripening and spoilage.  But the Debbie Meyer Green Bags claim that they absorb and remove this damaging gas.  That is how it works, they say.

I love this for brocolli, califlower, and iceburg lettuce. It didn’t work for strawberries, bananas, and green beans for me. I was always losing vegetables and so I wouldn’t buy them. But these have changed how I eat. I think you need to experiment with different foods. It definitely kept the first three items I listed fresh for a least two weeks. Make sure you follow the instructions. Things need to be DRY when you store them. I love them!!!!

Yes - LOVE these!

The trick to using these successfully is to wrap the item(s) in paper towels to absorb the moisture that accumulates BEFORE putting the item in the bag. I’ve kept cucumbers in this manner for more than 3 weeks and they were as fresh as the day I bought them! I’ve not found them great for room temp veggies/fruits such as bananas or fresh pineapple, but anything that is stored in the fridge will
last much longer as long as you use paper towels first. I couldn’t live without these bags!

Yes - Works great for Bananas
4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars

I just got these a couple of weeks ago and have been very impressed with how well they work for Bananas. I love bananas but always end up throwing 2-3 of them out because I don’t like when they go brown. After 5 days in these bags they had no brown spots on them at all. I haven’t tried on other fruit or vegetables yet but for their low price they are worth it just for bananas for me.

I have tried these a few times and did not find them any better than any other bag. I used them for banannas and while they may not turn brown as quickly they do get mushy inside. I found that moisture tends to accumulate quicker in these bags.

Yes - Great Bags

I love the green bags. I find my vegatables, bread and cheese last signifantly longer. Not much help with strawberries but most other fruits and vegtables get a much longer storage life. I have some of her green boxes also and find they are just as wonderful.

Debbie Meyer Green Bags are treated storage bags that are alleged to help keep produce intact longer than with “traditional” storage methods (storage bags or just tossed in the crisper drawer, etc.). To “enhance” their selling point, they also have a green tint to them. In the commercials, it is stressed repeatedly that you can’t get the same results with simple, everyday storage bags. If you do a search online for product reviews on Debbie Meyer Green Bags, you’ll find it is a real love-it-or-hate-it product. Some say they work like a dream; others say it’s a waste of money. I’m with the latter, as I found that the worked no better or worse than any other garden-variety storage bag you could get for a fraction of the price. Maybe on SOME fruits and veggies it MAY work better, but for what WE used, no. Like so many other infomercial items, it SEEMS like a great idea, one that ought to work (and wouldn’t it be grand if it did!) but the sad fact is that, again, like so many other infomercial items, it doesn’t live up to the hype. Save your money, folks. Besides, if you REALLY need to keep produce in your fridge for weeks and weeks at a time, maybe you MIGHT save some bucks if you bought only what you needed AND used it up in a timely matter. There’s also the matter of making it a habit to look deep into your fridge, say, once a week and see what’s inside. The sad truth is that produce – as much as we and Debbie Meyer might wish otherwise! – just isn’t meant to last forever. Or even a few weeks. And Debbie Meyer Greed – I mean GREEN – Bags aren’t going to help you, anyway.
