It's also amazing how many "natural" and organic convenience foods come wrapped in plastic. All the granola/energy bars. Frozen vegetables, even the organic ones. Organic frozen meals tend to come in a cardboard tray, but even they have plastic on top. Yogurt, cottage cheese, hummus, you name it.

I think the key word here is convenience. It seems like these days convenience equals plastic. But it didn't always. Whose convenience are we really talking about here? Could it be that it's more convenient for the manufacturers to package things this way than to come up with alternative packaging for convenience foods?

I'm on the plan right now. I recycle everything I can. The carbboard packaging and the plastic trays on the lunches/dinners. If it has the recycling symbol, I put it in the recycle bin.

Never did I think about how ironic organic and natural foods are. Wrapped in plastic? Boxes that are simply sitting in the landfills now? That is astonishing. Something that I have learned recently is to look for a seal of certification. A seal that shows that this said business is certified "green". If you are a business that needs to be certified, I would suggest that you turn to www.gbb.org. The Green Business Bureau. This place is a reputable source that if seen, people know that this business is reliable and green.
