Didn’t God already create banana packaging?

Where nature has provided a single serve, already wrapped banana, Del Monte says they can go one better — with plastic-wrapped single bananas for sale.

The plastic wrapper is transparent, and according to Del Monte, includes what they call “controlled ripening technology,” which allows bananas wrapped this way to remain ripe for an additional six days on the shelf.

Ironically, according to a Del Monte official quoted on London’s Daily Mail, the packaging is intended to be a green alternative.

By putting the bananas in the plastic packaging when they are green, according to the company, they ripen more slowly than if exposed to the open air.

I’ll stick with God’s packaging, thank you very much…
