Now you may wonder… why would PlasticContinents write a segment on companies that have publicly marked themselves as being sustainable? Well because it’s all related!
I mean think about it…
Most foods we buy, for the exception of fresh fruits and vegetables and even then, are pre-packaged; most likely done so, in plastic.
Michael Pollan, For the past 25 years, the best-selling author has been opening our eyes to food with books like The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual. Last year, he was named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the world. Michael’s message is that we’re not going to get right with how we eat until we start thinking about where our food comes from.
“It’s all opaque. You go to the grocery store and the meat doesn’t even have bones anymore. It’s just shrink-wrapped protoplasm, and kids don’t even know that it comes from an animal and that the animal had to be killed in order to put it on your plate,” Michael says.
And I completely agree with that statement; where we must start questioning where are these essential things come from?
