It happened again. I spied another egregious use of plastic, this time at Costco. Actually, Erik pointed it out. I almost died when I saw this restaurant selling gift certificates wrapped in more than two feet of plastic!
<----- that's Erik, being a dork.
Make no mistake about it. There was nothing inside this package but a sturdy piece of cardboard with a fancy label printed on it.
Then, in the produce aisle we saw these apples packaged in plastic. I've never seen apples in plastic like this before. I get it: apples bruise. But this is out of control and probably unnecessarily increases the cost of the food.
I had a reader comment on my last PLASTIC POSTING that he/she would rather have airport food wrapped in plastic to keep the germs out. What about produce at the grocery store? Do you agree?

Chicago horticulture expert Mike Nowak invited me on his radio show to discuss Earth Hour. LISTEN HERE. I'm about 3/4 of the way into the recording.
