Trader Joe's seems to have a love for packaging, as seen on produce ranging from avocados to zucchini. Putting plastic wrap around produce is pointless and devastating to the environment

Pointless, at least it keeps dirty hand off food.Besides, I rather not have to pick my spring mix salad piece by piece! [Actually, most of the produce is loose.]

There is far too much plastic used in the world, it's environmental impact is terribly detrimental. Its use should be limited.
