Too Much Wrapping

I was reasonably certain that CJ or Ian had done a posting on plastic wrapping (other than Ian's recent A Month Without Plastic ) but I can't find one. Anyway yesterday when I was at Intermarché I saw what, to me, is more ludicrous than any other piece of shrink wrapping that I've ever come across: shrink wrapped oranges. Even worse is that it's here in France where fruit and vegetables seem generally to be fresher and more 'straight from the farm' than we are used to in the UK.

  1. This is possibly better from the health point of view than waxing citrus fruit. I find the practice of waxing fruit really annoying when I want to use the rind in baking or cooking. Nevertheless, agree that shrink wrapping is ridiculous!

  2. I'll bet a £ to a penny that they have been waxed as well.
