|This is much too much waste for a small nasal spray.|
I opened up a box of Rhinaris nasal spray the other day and discovered a world of waste. There was a plastic bottle with a plastic cap, a separate plastic bag with the nozzle and cap in it, and there was the paper insert. After I assembled the nasal spray, I was left with lots of garbage and recycling, a plastic cap for the bottle that the nozzle ends up going into, a plastic bag from the nozzle, the plastic seal from around the top of the bottle, and the paper insert and cardboard box. Yes, some of it is recyclable, but really reducing would just be better for the world and its finite and precious resources.
|Of course the box is too big.|
|All of this was in the box.|
|Everything to the left of the assembled nasal spray is waste or recycling.|
|Another overly large box. What a waste of cardboard.|
