A story about someone/something seen today.
I studied the container.
Strange to believe something so everyday could become such a hot topic!
Old enough to recall the days before the container became king and everyone marvelled at how wonderful convenient, practical way we could complete our shopping.
As time has passed we’ve been seduced evermore by additional wrapping of our produce. More convenience more wrappings, layers, sleeves surrounding containers.
Before we realise we’re drowning in the abandoned waste. Hidden from our eyes , whisked away until we remember, yes we have stumbled on it when it dug into our bare feet on the beach in the summer!
And so here I am. Back at the washing up bowl rinsing out the plastic container, this object of distain.
How did we manage!!!
Paper bags, tissue paper, cardboard boxes & punnets.
Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favourite things.
Perhaps this may make a trip to the local butcher, baker and grocer an even more attractive proposition!
