I completely agree with you. The best waste is the one that hasn't been created. In this case, having the opportunity of having it ina a very natural packaging... I think that it's ridiculous to make an extra artificial one.
Indeed I really think that it would be interesting to understand why different brands use to make this new packagings around the food, not taking advantage of the natural ones.
Christel Tardif For sure. For example in Finland is very usual to recycle all kind of bottles. Depending on the bottle, you have a reward of 10cnt to 1€ reward. There are similar systems in cities like San Francisco where you can get about 20 cnts for each plastic bottle you give away in a green point.
