We are beginning to see more prominent use of biodegradable disposable food packaging, particularly at green-oriented festivals and natural groceries. But most junk (I mean “snack”) foods are still packed in plastic, which in case you had forgotten, not only fills landfills and pollutes oceans, but also perpetuates petroleum consumption.
