Green bags don't really work, in my honest opinion ... especially if you live in a place where it is HUMID!
I have had so much food ROT in green bags I finally gave up.
(it probably depends on the make of them --- like people, not all bags are made equally!)
One thing that makes me waste less is as soon as I get home from the store I cut the veggies I am going to use as "nibbles/snacks" into the right sizes IMMEDIATELY.
For HEAD LETTUCE lettuce, remove the core (whack it on the counter and it will pull right out, pour about 1/4 - 1/2 of a cup of water into where you removed the core and then store in a lettuce crisper which does not let the head of lettuce touch the bottom... lettuc crispers are available everywhere from Walmart for little, and Tupperware for $$$$$.
