Re: [GreenYes] peanut butter
So...
... we buy this plastic-coated pesticide-ridden peanut butter that probably has sugar and hydrogenated fats made from genetically engineered corn or soy. Spread it on Wonderbread made from ??? basically anything they feel like adding, with a PS knife... wrap it in a Glad Storage Bag, and ship our kid off to school in a bus that doesn't have seat belts, spewing diesel particulates, carcinogens and endocrine disruptors.
 
The sandwich sits in a locker that is moldy and at a high temperature where the plastics can ooze into the sandwich. But, have no fear, that peanut butter is protected by the hydrogenated fats and preservatives.
 
On to the classroom where all surfaces are covered with vinyl or some other synthetic material that fills the air with the scent of, as Ricardo Montalbon (sp?) would say, Rich Corinthian Leather.
 
Dang! Enough of this slow death by legalized/commercialized poison products.
 
boxcars of scientists wondering what to do next.Sorry for all that, but the endless search for new ways to turn our world into plastic really is a bit beyond any form of sanity. Perhaps we could find gainful employment for all the "scientists" with nothing better to do than despoil whatever we have left of the natural world.

Subject: [GreenYes] peanut butter

So what is the problem?  It appears that the sticky knives, product left in the jar and water saved just might be worth it.  Although I am concerned about what will most likely be more plastic wrappers, the new proposed "peanut butter saver" might be a good product.  Has anyone checked the label to see how many preservatives , etc will be used?  Hopefully the peanut butter people will not pull a Gerber and start using square containers.
