“Natalie Gordon took a photo in her local brand of Wholefoods, and put it on Twitter. She wrote: “If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn’t need to waste so much plastic on them.” Her photo has now been retweeted more than 500,000 times, and attracted hundreds of comments.
An overwhelming majority were shocked at yet another example of over-packaging of convenience foods. One tweeted: “They’re selling oranges already peeled in a plastic container. I’m done with the world. DONE.” Another commented: “Seriously?? Pre-peeled oranges…. Anyone who doesn’t know how to peel an orange deserves to starve.” And another added: “Pre-peeled oranges are actually a thing?! Wow. Just. Wow…”
Wholefoods, the company that was selling the oranges, responded to the tweet saying the product had been withdrawn. It Tweeted: “Definitely our mistake. These have been pulled. We hear you, and we will leave them in their natural packaging: the peel.”
