Oh this is super petty, but in line of discussion of an un-related topic at Penn State yesterday- the need (or desire) for dis-aggregation.
In this case, I just hate the wastefulness of hotel packaging of these coffee condiments. The black plastic sack on the left (waste) includes 2 sugars (waste- I am diabetic), one artificial sweetener (the one thing I want), a creamer (no need), a straw (I can stir with my finger, and a napkin (I can be neat).
So once I grab my one item of interest, the pink packet, the rest go into the waste stream, to the landfill.
So it is more efficient for the hotel to buy stuff I don’t use, put into the trash, than just to dis-aggregate the content to a level where I can select just what I will use.
So is there any other (ahem) system (ahem) where we package things like (ahem) this?
