Can you put bananas in brown paper bag to preserve?
You should definetly start at Ebay.com or craigslist.org. At both of the websites I just mentioned you will be able to find them at the least possible prices and still get great quality.
You can buy bean bag chairs in Baltimore, MD at your local Ikea. They usually have a fantastic selection.

When fruits ripen, they need to breath. So when they are taking in oxygen they are letting out carbon dioxide. Oxygen is a big part of the chemical changes involved in ripening. Ripening Fruits let out more than just carbon dioxide, they give off a gas called ethylene. when you put a banana in a paper bag the ethylene is trapped in the bag, but oxygen can still get through, this will make the banana riped faster, not preserve it
