Times Product Packaging Was So Wrong, People Couldn’t Stay Silent Any Longer

Packaging waste equals to about one-third of all trash, costing governments billions of dollars each year in disposal expenses. Bored Panda has collected a set of images, proving this huge contributor to the global waste crisis could be reduced significantly.

Packaging solutions often become the subjects of heated debates. While the eco-minded consumers want it to be as minimal as possible (meaning, fully recyclable), manufacturers often fire back that they don’t want their products to start decomposing in the store or become an easy target to shoplifters. And while some of their arguments have reasons behind them, a lot of the time packaging is needlessly excessive. Do we really need a pill to be wrapped in three layers of plastic? Or, better yet, casings for coke cans? Scroll down to learn why we really need to rethink packaging and vote for the worst or most ridiculous images!
