Baggage

On the back of this bag of Cedar's Spinach Wraps are "3 Steps to Wrapping Success!"

I want wrapping success, really I do, but that illustration ...

I wasn't quite sure what to make of it at first. It took me a while to figure out that the circle is the wrap. I showed a friend, and he asked why there are frogs in the picture.

And yet more baggage from these Sun Chips that Pam Denney picked up:

The chips are in the "world's first 100% compostable chip package."

From the Sun Chips website:

"We dream of a world with less waste. That's why we've introduced a bag made from plants so it's fully compostable. Every 10 ½ oz. SunChips® package is designed to fully break down in just 14 weeks when placed in a hot, active compost bin or pile. If it takes a little longer, don't worry about it. Mother nature will get to it soon enough."

Now, the eyerolling part of me thinks that if they really wanted less waste they could quit making them altogether, but I'll let it alone.

FYI, the bag comes with a note that it's extra-loud because of the compostable material, and that's true enough.
