A bit of a strange photo to share but I was amazed to note that the packaging for a Nestle Smarties easter egg contained NO PLASTIC at all. Even the smarties were just loose inside the egg, which made it more fun as it rattled.
I had to share with you because this seems an awesome step forward in the way we package our food I feel. Only the foil wrapped around the egg itself isn’t always recyclable…but then why use packaging in the first place if it isn’t necessary? There is so much waste in this area that it seems hugely important for manufacturers to think more about how they package, and for us as consumers to think more about our responsibility in buying products that consume less resources (or at least more recyclable resources) too.
Well done to Nestle on this one. Here is hoping that more responsible food packaging comes along in future – and maybe on larger easter eggs too!
