Get Outta Here, Ethylene

January 27, 1994

The problem with buying fruits and vegetables in bulk is that you don't always use them fast enough to justify the savings. Evert-Fresh bags are transparent plastic bags lined with processed Japanese oya stone, a cousin of zeolite, which absorbs the ethylene gases that cause discoloration in fruits and vegetables (and flowers, for that matter), extending their life for weeks. The reusable bags have also been given an anti-fogging treatment that minimizes moisture, inhibits bacteria growth and reduces Vitamin C loss up to 50%. Available in packages of 10 at health food stores.
