I’m sharing this because any reduction in unnecessary packaging waste is good for the planet - and because I think laser-etching avocados is funny. 🙂

    Come to Denmark and you’ll be seriously shocked by how much plastic is used for food packaging. It’s insane and I hate it so much.

      The US has its own share of overly plastic packaging. I have occasionally seen individual vegetables shrinkwrapped. It’s just not the norm.

        I saw a pre-peeled orange for sale at a convenience store. It was wrapped in plastic wrap. Like, why‽‽‽ They literally grow their own wrapper…

        It happens to cucumbers relatively often but other veggies are just so weirdly shaped from a packaging standpoint that I don’t think they see it as worthwhile
