Netizens on Facebook were not merciful when someone posted about a Toronto Sobeys giving away "cute" individually packaged clementine slices. There were lots of comments like, "So wasteful," "What a waste of single use plastic," "That's a massive waste" and "It's like climate change doesn't even exist." One person wrote, "Cute idea. Obscene delivery," and another person tagged Sobeys, writing, "seriously?"
Some people were befuddled by why Sobeys would give away fruit that comes in a natural packaging of its own skin, with other people similarly chiming in that they didn't understand why they wouldn't just give away whole clementines.
