It’s not easy to understand why some people seem to support the use of plastic even when there’s absolutely no need for it. The Instagram account @pointless_packaging raises that question by posting many photos of groceries packed in redundant plastic wrapping.

Many supermarkets today hold pre-cut fruits and vegetables that are marketed towards people with limited motor skills, and that’s one side of the story. The other is when whole pieces of fruits and veggies, some of which already come in their natural “wrapper”, are needlessly packed in plastic.

Many people are against this trend and the community behind this Instagram account is growing bigger every day.
