Environmentally Friendly Packaging

Fast Company’s Design blog today features an article titled Why Shrink-Wrapping a Cucumber is Actually Good for the Environment. The image to the right is taken from the article. Apparently, we have incorrectly believed plastics and other packaging play a nasty roll in our world, when they in fact may benefit our products and our environment in ways we as the general public have yet conceived. Perhaps allowing a cucumber to stay fresher longer is a benefit to our economy and maybe our environment but really, is it what nature and the cucumber intended? We already are well aware that as humans we have greatly manipulated the natural environment to meet our needs and extend its life to infinite ranges. Well then, if life extension and increased productivity are the goal, we’re definitely winning!
