Natural Packages: Oranges

An orange is a pretty good example of a healthy snack that travels well without any packaging. Everything is relative, you don’t want to toss one of these juicy fruits straight into your kids canvas backpack and send him into the fray. Two of my kids are adept at peeling oranges, clementines and mandarins. I buy them 2-3kg at a time and they usually don’t have a chance to go bad. I think all locavores should move to a place where citrus is local. I don’t even want to tell you how little I pay for in season fruit. I picked a lemon from the front yard this morning :)

My commitment to reducing my plastic consumption means that I won’t be purchasing any of the orange juice squeezing gadgets that are available everywhere. I miss the beautiful glass juice squeezer that I used to have before I moved

    I have one of those glass citrus squeezers too, and I bought it for a few dollars at a thrift store– keep your eyes open and you’re sure to stumble across a replacement soon!
