Why do some fruits have stickers and others don’t?
Why do some fruits have stickers and others don’t? I asked @colessupermarkets via @twitter if they could train their staff to recognise produce instead of using plastic stickers. To their credit, they were quick to respond. Disappointingly, they dazzled me with a cleverly worded answer that gave hope and alliance in our principles but also set zero expectations of any further development. What did I learn from this exchange? Making incremental changes in the name of environmental sustainability is not their priority. This is not going to stop me from asking. In fact, I’m more motivated than ever to politely and respectfully suggest environmentally friendly changes to all businesses. It’s a lot of pressure to try and change our individual lifestyles when big businesses aren’t on board. The more voices, the louder they’ll hear our call.
