It’s understandable for companies to go extra in protecting the products they send. Satisfied customers are people who get their orders safe and sound. But with the world concern on plastic pollution and sustainability, companies have to stand carefully between over-packaging and quality control.
Sometimes, it’s also the company’s policy for certain items to be wrapped in such a way to prevent theft and improve presentation. But really, Green Lemon has to show you guys these things and perhaps remind people that we should be less of an ass to earth. Like Japan, which got creative with their packaging!
