British supermarkets are starting to go "nude". Bowing to pressure from environmentally conscious consumers, big brand shops have begun taking steps to strip their shelves of plastic wrapping over concerns about saving the oceans from waste. Now retailers in Britain—where even bunches of bananas are often sealed in plastic to keep them fresh and undamaged during long-distance shipping—are gradually following suit. The Oxford branch of the upmarket chain was selling types of vegetables and fruits, plus cereals, grains, couscous, lentils, wine, beer and other items in bulk, in what was initially planned as an week trial.
Lady Gaga: Naked and Wrapped in Plastic

Sales of some vegetables have soared by up to per cent following moves by a number of New Zealand supermarkets to ditch plastic packaging. A group of New World supermarkets have abandoned the use of plastic wrapping for virtually all of their fruit and vegetables in a project labelled 'food in the nude'. Pioneered by the New World store at Bishopdale in Christchurch, it has led to stunning sales figures. By wrapping products in plastic we sanitise and deprive people of this experience; it dispensing with plastic was a huge driver for us. Bond says he was initially concerned his plans could backfire: The initiative is part of the war against plastic. In New Zealand the days of single-use plastic shopping bags are numbered — most supermarkets no longer providing them at the check-out - while the government late last year agreed to regulations for a mandatory phase-out across all retailers from July 1.
'Food in the nude' at New World amid war on plastic waste
A new photo of Lady Gaga naked and wrapped on little more than clear, see-through plastic, ankle-length "skirt" has surfaced. The photo is decidedly NSFW, since Gaga's breasts are exposed and while her nipples look covered in some sort of makeup that distorts them, the suggestion is still there and visible. Gaga's long platinum hair covers her other breast, and she's wearing clear, knee-high stripper boots with Lucite heels.
One of my bugbears is just how much packaging some food has… I get that it needs to stay fresh and travel safely, but things like individually wrapped biscuits and the like, gah — our ancestors in years if we have any are going to be digging that stuff up and shaking their heads. The guys at Smashbox and Nude Food sent us a bunch of their new lunch products to run a little experiment. What would a week of lunches look like in their lunchboxes versus cling wrap and a bag? I hope you see the outcome and realise just how much plastic is potentially ending up in school yards around Australia. The lunchbox products from Smashbox and Nude Food are versatile and if your kids are anything like mine the kids love them.
