Is that this grocery store packaging gone mad?


UNNECESSARY packaging for 2 boiled eggs and a few wilting spinach at Coles has raised a number of eyebrows.

Noticed nestled amongst the cheese and cream at Coles on Racecourse Highway, Ascot different day was a plastic tub calling itself a “snack pot”.

This consisted of two boiled eggs nestled on a number of wilting spinach leaves, all encased in plastic in all probability destined for the underside of Moreton Bay.

Are individuals actually too busy to boil a few eggs as of late?

It appear supermarkets aren’t listening to environmental teams and governments who say overuse of plastics is uncontrolled, with a lot of the garbage ending up in our rivers and oceans.
