Some plastic bag makers claim that their bags absorb ethylene gas. Though we have seen instances where some manufacturers have blended ethylene gas absorbent material into the plastic resin, the amount of absorbent material is necessarily extremely tiny. Because micro-pore plastic bags create a more balanced humidity environment inside the bag they do offer more protection than nothing, but the truth is that actually absorbing and neutralizing ethylene gas from the entire storage space is a better solution. The Bluapple® ethylene gas removal solution is comprehensive, cheaper, more effective, and does not add plastic bags to landfills. A recent analysis by Consumer Reports reports disappointing results from so-called “green” bag products.
