17 Scandalous Examples Of Totally Unnecessary Plastic Packaging

Plastic is a huge problem for our planet and more and more people have realized the scourge and tried to take small daily steps to minimize the impact that harmful materials have on the environment. They chose paper bags instead of plastic bags, they replaced plastic plates with greener alternatives. Yet not everyone seems to have understood the need to minimize the use of this material. Supermarkets, in an attempt to cope with consumer laziness, are using absolutely unnecessary and unnecessary plastic packaging, and these 17 photos are a sad example.
