Review - Debbie Meyer GreenBags and GreenBoxes

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I once heard that the fruit and vegetable drawers in the refrigerator was the place where good intentions go to die. I am guilty of buying too much produce at once and then having to throw it away and it really bothers me to toss out our food. I was very excited to try the Debbie Meyer GreenBoxes™ 32-piece set to see if these storage boxes really do help extend the freshness of vegetables and fruits.
Debbie Meyer GreenBoxes are BPA-free and are made with a proprietary combination of all-natural minerals. They have been tested in an independent lab and shown to extend the life of fresh produce as well as baked goods. These GreenBoxes are more flexible than hard-sided storage containers, but are thicker and sturdier than the store-brand plastic containers I usually buy at my grocery store. GreenBoxes are also microwave safe and can be washed on the top rack of the dishwasher. They can also be used indefinitely.
My set came with three sizes of boxes, with lids for each. After my weekly trip to the grocery store, I transferred all my fresh fruits and vegetables from the flimsy plastic produce bags into the GreenBoxes and stacked them neatly in my refrigerator. Not only are they more organized, I can better see what I bought, and the GreenBoxes actually look pretty against the white interior of the refrigerator. A week later, even two weeks later, the fruits and vegetables we hadn't eaten yet were still as fresh as the day I brought them home!
I also received the Debbie Meyer GreenBags® 20-piece set. They are made for larger produce items, such as melons, broccoli, and bananas, or for larger amounts of food, like a bag of apples, oranges, or potatoes. My variety package of GreenBags contained medium, large, and extra large bags. Both the GreenBoxes and GreenBags can be used in the refrigerator or the pantry. Debbie Meyer products are also made in the USA!
The GreenBags are flat on the bottom, which makes the bags stand up so they are easier to fill. Each bag can be used up to 10 times. Again, I found that my produce lasted longer in the GreenBags. I even left one apple in a bag for three weeks just to see if it would go bad, but it didn't! I am so happy that I won't be wasting food anymore and I'll be saving money because now I won't have to replace wasted food with fresh food.
Debbie Meyer also has other products that are going to be a huge help to me in the kitchen. I received a package of Oven Bags for roasting meat, fish, and vegetables (without added oils) in the oven and Grilling Bags which works on both the barbecue grill and in the oven. They really lock in the flavor and, best of all, I don't have to clean the appliances afterwards!
Debbie Meyer SlowCooker liners are my new best friend, because I hate cleaning that big clunky crock after food has cooked all day. I am also very pleased with the Debbie Meyer Microwave Steamer Bags, since steamed veggies are so much healthier than boiled or fried veggies. I've also noticed that cooking with the Debbie Meyer products makes the food taste more flavorful. I absolutely recommend Debbie Meyer products!
You can buy Debbie Meyer GreenBoxes, GreenBags, and these other products at lots of stores, but make sure you're getting The Original Debbie Meyer brand! It is the only brand I've ever used that actually extends the life of my food.
