We've used the cellophane for greens for many, many years.  We sell at 
Farmers Markets and through local independent grocers.  Our customers 
are pleased with how well the greens hold up in cellophane; most 
customers say the greens last at least a week in the bag in a 
refrigerator.  Actually most people don't keep them around that long 
anyway.  It is important to spin the greens almost dry before packing 
into the cellophane.
