Document Your Life #92 – Styrofoam & Sunshine

Which one would you pick? Oh, gush…that’s too easy, I guess.

I’d pick sunshine every time (surprise!), but when I go to the supermarket to buy (e.g.) lettuce, I have to pick Styrofoam.

Every. Damn. Time.

Believe me, I don’t want to. But I live in a place where Styrofoam is everywhere and where supermarkets use them frequently to pack lettuce and other vegetables, meats, etc., etc.

I am sick of it, really. Besides the Styrofoam, there’s also the plastic – none of which I can reuse or recycle. So, it’s single-use and gets thrown out as soon as I come home and unpack my groceries.

I could just avoid buying groceries that come with Styrofoam and plastic, and I do mainly go for the loose veggies that I can just grab and put in my reusable shopping bag. But I love lettuce and unfortunately lettuce isn’t sold where I live without the packaging. Ever.

What’s a poor woman like me to do, then? What can I do about it? My sick-and-tired-of-it-all brain tells me to post a picture of the Styrofoam on my Instagram and tag the supermarket that sold it and call them out.

So, that’s what I do.

I’m gonna call them out and I’m gonna keep calling them out until hopefully some day I can go to the supermarket and not have to bring home Styrofoam.
