Food containers

I have noticed the proliferation of plastic food containers recently. Sometimes there are even multiple layers of plastic encasing food goods. The whole situation is endemic to the international commercial practices around food sales. I seem to remember more glass containers when I was a kid… but that may just be me.

The recent discussion about PFAS chemicals has me wondering how many of these chemicals are used in food packaging?what are our products shipped in?

Has anyone noticed how they pack those organic foods into PFAS coated containers?

Why did these olives need to be sold in a plastic bag rather than a glass jar?
