I’m watching television the other day when a new product commercial is aired. This one really got me steamed. I’m not a fan of disposable throw away cleaning aids. They are a waste and fill up landfills with crap that will never decompose. Sorry, back to the commercial I saw. There is this new plastic wrap that goes on the front of cars so that bugs don’t ruin the paint job. “Just peel off and throw away!” It comes in a 100 foot long roll, and you can constantly wrap your car in plastic – for its protection.
I drive a lot for my work – I drive a Prius – I’m trying to do my part to lesson my footprint – and I admit its challenging. However, this is plain lunacy, talk about unbelievable waste of resources, landfill space and for what – bugs? I take a hose and rag and wipe them off, and my paint job looks just fine.
So here’s the question of the day – when do we start telling these companies – No. No to waste, no to irresponsibility, and no to bad product development. Of course it will sell – our cars need constant protection from the environment – too bad the environment has no protection from idiotic companies.
