Is this too far or would you buy a ready peeled orange?
This photo has promoted outrage online…
A company called whole foods are selling a a ready peeled orange in a plastic tub.
This image has hit the headline after a woman on twitter, Natalie Gordon, posted the photo along with the caption ”If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn’t need to waste so much plastic on them.”
It has since bee retweeted over 50,000 times.
One person responded: “That makes me unbelievably angry actually.”
Another said: “I guess people are too busy to peel an orange!”
However, some people pointed out that the pre-peeled oranges were handy for the elderly and disabled.
Whole Foods responded to Natalie’s tweet saying ”@awlilnatty Definitely our mistake. These have been pulled. We hear you, and we will leave them in their natural packaging: the peel.”
