Green Tip #194: Plastic Wrap and Produce

Every time I pass the cellophane wrapped fruit in the produce aisle I cringe. So unnatural for fruit to be bundled up in plastic wrap like that, sometimes to the point where the produce is unrecognizable. While this fruit is often discounted , you really will not get a better product than if you bought fruit in bulk and stored it in your own cloth produce bag. The discounted plastic wrap fruit is very ripe or starting to rot but you cannot tell this until you unwrap it at home. Spend a little more and get more value for your money and pick your own fruit from the bins.

Do you buy produce wrapped in plastic?
