less paint and better green selling on labels

Soda cans

plastic wrapped food, ex: breads, fruits, paper packed items wrapped into plastic.

Frozen plastic packed items.

 

Most of these have plenty of painted on labels, with way too much paint and coloring and wasting so much extra time and money. 

Whatever happened to the green movement , and what happened when tons of items were packed into brown paper wrappings, or just plain black and white painted labels. 

Even the brown paper was conservative, and it could be just printed modestly.

I think soda cans get way.too.much. paint. and labeling on them.  Even the cardboard could use less color. Brown again, ...just fine.

We consume the product not the wrapping.

I agree. However it is proven people eat with their eyes more 'pop' and most and more people are likely to grab it off the shelves.

Most of it is ink not paint (not that it matters). But I agree, less is more. Like Chrissy said though, branding sells.

we do eat with our eyes first but there are loads of ways to make "green" wrapping attractive with out using all the ink and crap.

They do ot that way cause its cheap and attracts people to their product. Its all about the money the company can make. Most arent concerned with the earth or health, they are just concerned with how much money they can put in their pockets.

 but we see the wrapping, humans in general are visual creatures. Wrapping is often what sells the product. But I do agree, I would probably chose a more green label over an over done one.
