Plastic is negatively effecting our environment. I see a lot pre-packaged fruit and vegetables, when not necessary. Food like tomatoes, apples, mandarins, bananas and avocados do not require packaging and yet, they have been packaged.

Scientists have said that within 10 years, the pollution humans have started will be irreversible. Majority of the plastic entering our waterways is from pre-packaged fruit and vegetables. We need to take action to prevent anything like this happening. Although we cannot change the fact that pollution is underway, we can change the fact that pre packaged fruit and vegetables is one of the most common causes.

I have been actively involved in quite a few environmental programs, one of which is Street to Bay. This is a program ran by scouts where we go along rivers and streets and pick up litter every three months to compare the amounts and types. I spend a significant amount of my time working towards a better outcome to the world. Alas, when I head over the supermarket with my parents to get some fruit to snack on, we are bombarded with plastics. I don't understand why people thought that six apples need to be in a plastic tray covered my MORE plastic. This never used to happen and, quite frankly, would be cheaper to just stop using pre-packaged.

I understand that a change like this has been mentioned and many people are trying to make this happen, but this change has not happened. When will it be enough? How many people need to say it before you listen?
