Raw Foodie Singapore: Green Bags
One problem with having a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables is that they can spoil and there's wastage. Many foods ripen and spoil due to the release of ethylene. For detailed info about this process see here.
There is a solution in the form of ethylene absorbing bags. The most well known brand is Evert Fresh but these are not available in Singapore. There was another brand called Ever Fresh from japan that used to be carried by Cold Storage but no more!
Fortunatley, I hunted down the local distributor who still carries the bags. At S$50 for 100 bags, this is cheaper than the Evert-Fresh product available at Amazon.

I got some and will test in coming weeks to compare to normal bags. I use them now - so far so good but cannot say how much better they are than normal plastic bags. But they are sturdy and re-useable and so far nothing has spoiled using them.
