I too have the Debbie Meyers green bags and they do work! They absorb the dreaded ethylene gas. I also buy organic whenever possible, and local in the summer ... there's not much local produce in the winter in Wisconsin! Organic bananas sitting on my counter next to regular bananas after a week were still good to eat, the regular ones were not. I think this is because the non organic ones are actually sprayed with ethylene gas to hasten ripening ... which it of course does, making them not last as long as if left to their own! Next test is a regular versus organic banana in the green bag ... of course, after my little tests, the over ripe bananas don't go to waste, they're perfect for banana bread, muffins or cake!
