    This is awful. Why are people on this thread defending this? This is completely wasteful, and truly awful.

    @Mike Gustafson I have been recycling since the 1990's- even when it is not convenient. I have been a vegetarian several times in my life. I am quite conservative in my consumtion of natural resource & am a socially conscience consumer. I also pass my appreciation of Mother Nature on to future generations. Wbu?

    The United States has just as much, if not more, plastic waste for a single meal. Very misleading.

    For a country that prides itself on cleanliness and manners, it is rude and disgusting to see all that plastic wasted.I know you have more than a few scientists that can explain that plants have a double cell wall that is very effective at keeping out bacteria on their own. Just wash the fruit/veggies before eating them or cooking them.
