View Full Version : Perishable in plastic containers

CathyA's post about Keurig cups reminded me about something that I just don't get. It seems like it is getting harder and harder to find fresh produce, cheese and other items that are not packaged in plastic. I have given up trying to find individual bunches of spinach as everyone seems to want pre-washed leaves in plastic boxes or bags. And the cheese aisle has grown from just a couple of items to a whole row of everykind packaged pre-sliced or pre-shredded. Do people not realize that shredded and sliced cheese has to be sprayed with a preservative to keep it from molding? Is it that hard to slice or grate one's own cheese from a block? Definitely a pet peeve of mine...we are drowning in plastic packaging and now people expect the convenience of just opening a container.
