Individually Wrapped Bananas

I wish it wasn’t true. Del Monte is testing, and will likely soon unveil, individually wrapped bananas at convenience stores and other locations throughout the United States and UK. They will be sold with the tagline: “Natural Energy Snack on the Go.” They will also probably coat significantly more than an individually purchased banana in a grocery store (around $1 each in the United States).

The company also claims the move is actually green. The packaging will prevent the fruit from ripening too quickly, thus prolonging its shelf life. Environmental experts say that the fruit’s natural skin provides any sort of protection from germs and the plastic is an unnecessary harm to the environment.
