Whole Foods is being charged of promoting lazy consumers by selling unpeeled oranges in not so environmentally friendly packaging.

Two days ago, an image appeared on Imgur the showcasing peeled oranges sitting individual plastic containers at a Whole Foods location in California, accompanied by the caption, “Are people really that lazy nowadays?”

On Thursday morning, Nathalie Gordon retweeted the image, sarcastically noting,fake bags
“If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn’t need to waste so much plastic on them.” Her post has been retweeted and liked over 60,000 times.

If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn’t need to waste so much plastic on them.

Every time I see a picture of that unpeeled orange in a plastic container I want to burn whole foods down to the ground.

A spokeswoman from the grocery chain told The Huffington Post that “a lot of our customers love the convenience of our cut produce offerings, but this was a simple case where a handful of stores experimented with a seasonal product spotlight that wasn’t fully thought through. We’re glad some customers pointed it out so we could take a closer look.”

But now some people are pointing out that the pre peeled fruit may actually be a good idea. On Twitter, users noted that the item could be convenient for people unable to peel an orange due to handicap or various medical conditions.
