Packaging is usually essential, but sometimes, it's just totally extra.
Products are usually packaged to keep them safe or fresh (if it's some sort of perishable product) but sometimes companies will go a little overboard on packaging for no apparent reason whatsoever.
For example, these individually packaged oranges:
Well, some things REALLY don't need plastic wrapped around them but that didn't stop these people.
But for real. It's so....extra.
It's about asking yourself, "Does my box need all this?"
And also, if you're promoting yourself as helpful for the environment.....REALLY think about that.
Does anyone (besides me) think it's odd that these organic free-range eggs come in a plastic container rather than an environmentally friendly recycled paper one? I normally buy local eggs but won't have time to get to the farmers market this weekend, so I grabbed these at the grocery. This packaging just seems weird to me #cleaneating #environment #recycling #wastefulpackaging
For goodness' sake, the earth is DYING people.
We have to be more responsible.
Et tu Chipotle? We expected better.
