Plastic Wrongness, Plus Some Cuteness

Exhibit A: This culprit was rolling around on the floor of the subway this morning. Someone paid $3 for disgusting-looking melon and kiwi and then abandoned it on the train. Tres sad.

This is my fruit. Comes wrapped perfectly by nature. Every time I eat an orange, I think to myself, wow, an orange is a such a miracle. By the way, my friend Edward taught me an awesome trick for unpeeling an orange with ease. Roll it firmly between your hands before you start peeling, I almost always get the peel off in one piece now!

Okay this picture is just cute. The little guy I babysit loving Feist's 1234 video. That video makes him so happy! And I guess my computer is made of plastic, but unlike the plastic fruit container it brings lasting joy to infants. We're not working towards perfection here, but we are working towards making smarter, more conscious choices, right?

I hope you're sitting down for this one. This is an overflowing garbage can in Brooklyn. Would you look at all that plastic? This town needs to go on a serious plastic diet!

Important note: the orange cost a mere FRACTION of what that abandoned fruit cup cost.
