Some plastic can save the planet

5 0 0

OPINION: It's one of those Facebook posts that pops up as regularly as pimples once did on my teenaged nose.

Why on earth do supermarkets wrap these cucumbers/apples/oranges zucchinis in plastic when they have perfectly good skin?

The question's rhetorical, of course. We all know the answer. Supermarkets are stupid and don't care about the planet. They don't realise that cucumbers already have skin. And did we mention that they're stupid?

It feels pretty good, being smarter than a supermarket. So the posts and high-fiving comments keep coming.
