By now, you’d think that most companies would have some grasp of the need to be environmentally responsible with their packaging. Alas, it appears some execs didn’t get the message, because there are still tons of products out there with infuriatingly wasteful packaging – from potatoes wrapped in plastic to tin cans packaged in foam.

20. These strawberries

Are these the rarest, most delicious strawberries in the world? We can’t think of any other reason why they’d need such ridiculously luxurious packaging. After all, we can’t say we’ve ever been mortified at the thought of strawberries touching, to the point that they’d need individual packaging. This “solution,” then, just screams “wasteful.”

19. This pill

Look, we get it. You don’t want something like medication falling into the wrong hands accidentally, so there’s a case to be made for overpackaging it. But to this extreme? Probably not. After all, they could always have packed in more than a single pill to make better use of the space.
