‘I bought this entirely based on it’s packaging,’ Bron tells me, holding up a six pack of beer.
Yes! I think. Does this mean he’s finally starting to get the idea?
‘Well, and because they were cheap,’ he adds.
Ok, I guess that was inevitable, but at least he still chose the plastic-free ones. He goes on to tell me he had three options, going by the price: a four pack of cans, which were held together with those horrid plastic rings that are always pictured in the news getting wrapped around some poor creature’s neck. Or there was another brand, which was entirely cased in plastic and so even worse.
So, congratulations to the company whose beer comes in green glass bottles, the pack held together by cardboard. And congratulations to Bron for thinking through his options and actually going for the plastic-free choice. Maybe there’s hope for him yet.
