35 Times People Are Absolutely Baffled By Unnecessary Packaging

Why would you ever wrap a can of Coca-Cola?

Selling fresh produces and products require manufacturer and producers to consider how to preserve them. Especially creative products that are fragile and easily breaks or when the items are ordered online and shipped by air.

But depending on what you are selling, there might not be any use to try so hard to keep your products fresh. The excess cost you have to add just to wrap them in useless plastic bags that are immediately thrown away can be reduced.

Yet, instead of being effective, efficient and environmental-friendly, these people found companies just throwing in so much plastic, paper, and packaging that only contribute to more waste.
