Most people believe that manufacturers are responsible for the reduction in product packaging while some people disagree with this by voicing that shoppers are liable for overpackaging. Though Makers and consumers are both accountable for the reduce in wrapping, the major charge is with the latter.
Firstly, Makers are the ones who are responsible for producing the goods thereby covering them too. They<font color=”rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)” face=”inherit”> should consider the cost these over-bundling levies onto the goods and on the environment. When the packaging consists of different layers of plastics which people cannot even use after consumption of the product goes to waste which in turn loads in the dump completely destroying the environment. Though government has laid severe taxes on using plastics, makers are still using it for their goods without considering the harms it poses to the environment. The major example to this is LAYS potato chips. Many kids consume this chips on a day-to-day basis where the cover ends up in the dumpster. Needless to day the scene that anyone can imagine with lots of lays packets covering the whole dump we all noticed at our </font>neighborhood<font color=”rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)” face=”inherit”>. Secondly, unless the manufacturer’s give it in an attractive package, some people are not gonna ask for it. Most consumers are only looking at the quality of the food not how it is well covered and presented. Therefore all makers without any variation should agree to go for the same or less wrapping of goods thereby saving their costs and the environment afterall they are the ones paying taxes for it.</font>
<font color=”#ba0000″>Though consumers are aware of the over-packaging yet , they buy the product because they look nice with it. </font>Everything is fine when the packaging is necessary for the product. For example, products such as glass bottle, cosmetics, brittle ones needs careful packaging otherwise they might break during transportation. Moreover, if not handled properly, this might cause a lot of damage to the Processor, whereas for products which certainly doesn’t need much of packaging such as chocolates, biscuits and other luxury items ,comes with a lot of unnecessary wrappers just for the sake of attracting customers. For example, I noticed recently that for Valetine’s day, a chocolate brand made a large chocolate with a lots of outer packaging and notes to make it appealing to the youngsters. The great irony is that the company gained tremendous response to the campaign and the sales pitched high though it had the same chocolate inside a different package. Consumers should be aware that packaging doesn’t really change many things with the product or its taste . On the other hand, consumers should start carrying their own bags to purchase products in order to avoid plastics and its overall usage. This will also help the retailers who will use plastic covers less.
In conclusion, Though makers may be fully responsible for limiting wrappers, I believe that consumers are also liable for it given that they are the ones who are using the end product.
