Showing posts with the label Bagged Packaged Goods
Packaged goods are often found in the produce section of your grocery store, but what you might not know is that packaging helps keep food fresh and safe for longer. Packaging also protects the environment by preventing unnecessary waste. When you buy a bag of chips or a bag of cookies, you are most likely eating a better quality product than if you had bought the same type of snack in a box. These bags often have the added bonus of being more environmentally friendly and easier to store. What is the Problem with Bagged Packaged Goods? Bagged packaged goods are a problem because they often end up in the trash. These products are usually wrapped in plastic and paper, which makes it difficult to recycle them. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, only about 30 percent of plastic packaging is recycled. This means that a lot of plastic ends up in landfills or the ocean. The problem with bagged packaged goods is that they take up space in landfills and they harm the environment.
