20 Times This Online Group Shared Egregious Examples Of Excessive Packaging

Published 3 years ago

Since plastic waste is produced every day, some companies prefer using biodegradable and eco-friendly packaging to help the environment. Sadly, there are still very few companies that choose this idea, and many of them still wrap their products in numerous layers of plastic, to the point where it’s absolutely ridiculous.

R/EgregiousPackaging subreddit is a place where people share pictures of the most ridiculously wasteful and unnecessary packaging they’ve come across, and it’s quite infuriating how thoughtless these companies are. Scroll below to see a collection of wasteful packaging that made people speak up about the ludicrous thing! And if you want to see more of this blood-boiling stuff, check them out in our previous post here.
