Nature in Clingwrap

Lotte department stores are trendy outlets that cater to social classes of higher monetary distinction. They're kind of similar to David Jones in Australia. I tend to avoid buying groceries from them, mainly because my bank statements would probably induce fits of laughter if seen by anyone living above the poverty line. Now though, I have a more noble reason to avoid them. Lotte have decided it prudent to cover their entire fresh food section with clingwrap.

Clingwrap is primarily made from natural gas or petroleum, which is reason enough to limit its use. I must admit though, it is pretty useful in the lab. However, plasticising everything in this way seems a little too obsessively hygienic.

Or maybe it's just so that bloggers like me can take shinier photos.

Not to mention clingwrap is horrible for the environment. Most of it ends up in a landfill or in the ocean. Most people don't think about the impact plastic usage has on the environment.
