Most of what we buy is packaged, and that can only be bad news for our environment because all that paper and plastic needs energy, water and oil to create and lots landfill space to get rid of it. Even wore is the fact that the vast majority of it is used only once, making this waste even more abhorrent.
A preoccupation with cleanliness, however, is fuelling ever-greater demand for packaged food products and other goods. While wrapping meat, for example, demonstrates good hygiene, packaging individual bananas and dried fruits is clearly insane!
