It's "Particularly Preposterous Packaging Day"

What is the one thing that you think is packaged preposterously?

What Lisa said - and just so many things packaged in plastic and styrofoam!  I don't understand why cardboard and paper/waxed paper can't be used in so many instances.  I mean, what about our landfills?  Fast food chains should all be using paper boxes for drive-thru / carry-out.  Why can't straws have paper sheaths?  Do they HAVE to be PLASTIC?  why can't we still get the paper/waxed straws?  And what about going back to the paper cups with wax instead of styrofoam?  Egg cartons should all be cardboard, not styrofoam.  and everyone should be required to use paper or bring their own bags to the grocery store.  I just have this thing about so much plastic and styrofoam  being used and it seems like it is more prevalent than ever!

Packing for some children's toys.  What is the good of buying a toy that you can't get out of the box.

All of the bove postings state my case against preprosperous packaging.

I have always thought that toothpaste tubes don't also need to be in a cardboard box.  I wish manufacturers could package 3 or 4 tubes in a recyclable plastic bag.

 Or the toys with screws everywhere that you cant open unless you have a tiny screw driver.  Insane!

I hate when I get something on-line and there is a ton of packaging peanuts or plastic "pillows" in it.
