Asia is one of the worse places , Drain feet high in plastics , When it rains , The sea is littered with it. Washed off from beached, Rivers with floating rubbish bags, beaches covers and the shore line with sand and plastic. Its not the plastic thats the problem. Its the people and what they do with it. Its also every other form of rubbish they like to throw into the rivers, streams and drains, Country side, To lazy to dispose of it properly.

What needs to be done is have a fine for any one who throws any form of rubbish that is not fast biologically degradable . Anything that is man made must be disposed off in the right way. And stop super market over packaging from cleaning stuffs to food. Far to much plastic. Polystyrene ,cellophane , Use only recycled paper and stop jutting down trees, take your unwanted thing to a charity shop or recycle place. Or rap it and put it beside a skip, so it may be used, Separate your tins ,...

this is ridiculous. why just Trader Joes. Why not Walmart, Jewel, and these other stores. Trader Joes pays cash for their items and get the customers the lowest prices. It is a small company coompared to those who are in a higher bracket. I be lieve they should change there packaging, but I also be live that if you going to do it with this company, then you do it to all companies!

you can re a small company easier as a big one and you have to start to tell it everywhere to every company especially McDonalds,to stop using plastic straws -there exists paper ones and to stop giving away plastic toys etc.

not really against plastic wrappings,it has it's ups/downs,but does protect food from tampering though.......,why it's used for,for our protection as well,just not dealt with properly is all after usage......

I Love Trader Joes but although they do make a big effort to encourage people to bring their own bags, they way overuse plastic packing materials. They need to come up with a new and improved idea. I have felt this way for years.

everything Trader Joes brings is organic. I believe they are doing a pretty good job in the green department. i am sorry but choosing my battles means i cannot support this particular issue.

what's REALLY wasteful isn't these veggies, which at least usually have only one of packaging...it's BREAKFAST CEREAL, which of course usually has BOTH an outer cardboard box AND an inner layer of relatively thick plastic..Cerela should be required to be sold in refillable containers that can then be brought back to the same grocery store and refilled/purchased by weight.
