Excessive Packaging: A Global Issue

Although it can take up to 1,000 years for plastic to decompose, it is still widely used in a lot of packaging.

But while items such as oranges and bananas come with their own built-in peel, it hasn't stopped manufacturers around the world adding extra plastic around them anyway.

Those at Bored Panda collated the most shameful packaging decisions spotted by shoppers around the world.

They include bread taken away from its loaf to be individually wrapped, as well as putting a satsuma in a plastic pot for no apparent reason.

In another snap, a customer's shopping was placed in three large cardboard boxes - despite all being ordered from the same warehouse.

In one, even an order of bubble wrap came alongside some added plastic for 'protection'.

In a day and age where consumers are looking to make more eco-conscious decisions, companies are still clearly making decisions that are damaging for the environment.

Here, FEMAIL takes a look at some of the times excessive packaging was used - often for little to no reason at all.
