Steve asked, "After you use the containers for a while, do they get 
saturated with ethylene and become unable to absorb more?"

    According to what I have learned is that the active ingredient in Green 
Bags and Green Containers is zeolite, a volcanic mineral that absorbs gases 
including ethylene.  When the zeolite becomes saturated with a gas, it can 
be regenerated/restored by putting it in sunshine for 8 hours or in a 200 
degree oven for an hour.
