HOW TO USE
THE STORY BEHIND THE BAGS
- 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.
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.
