Particularly Preposterous Packaging Day
Ever tried unsuccessfully to open a sealed tablet bottle only to have your wrist sprain and worsening headaches? This is a particularly absurd packaging day.
Don’t be afraid to use scissors or knives to pry open a plastic bag to get a tool or toy out. Tell the manufacturer that your way of packaging items is not theirs.
Over-packaging is not only a waste of time but also a waste of precious resources. It also leaves us with more rubbish to dispose of. It is a great way to celebrate the occasion by avoiding unnecessary packaging. This is the day to say no to burger boxes, supermarket plastic bags, and think outside of the box.
