If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn't need to waste so much plastic on them. pic.twitter.com/00YECaHB4D— Nathalie Gordon (@awlilnatty) March 3, 2016
(NEWSER) – Nathalie Gordon was browsing through a Whole Foods store when she spotted something odd: peeled oranges packaged in plastic containers. While the store might've thought the items were convenient for customers, Gordon had a different take.
"If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn't need to waste so much plastic on them," she tweeted Thursday alongside a photo, which has been retweeted more than 58,000 times as of this writing. Some users noted that the oranges would be nice for people unable to peel them on their own, say because of mobility issues, but others soon complained, too. "That makes me unbelievably angry," wrote one. "Talk about necessarily contributing to plastic taking over the planet."
