Of late I happened to see lots of videos on different WhatsApp groups about people complaining of getting a wrong product (adulterated, bacteria infested, coagulated product, and many more reasons). Recently while I presented my case on the food safety and nutrition, I also happened to hear a young boy all of 8 years narrating how his Nani bought a Tetra Pak juice only to find it with some fungal growth. Since that day he and his family is convinced that bottles are a better option than six layered cartons.
Isn’t it an irony that plastic won over a packaging material that has biodegradable and recyclable elements?
Does it not sound absurd that something that is good for earth and good for us and the products that we consume has lost out to a material that is ecologically toxic?
Is it a gimmick that a company invests in a machinery, materials and systems that guarantee nutrition, food safety and preservative free consumable goods?
Who is to be blamed for the bad product that we get and that makes us feel cheated? Common sense says that we have to stop acting naive and as if we were born only yesterday. With information at the click of our fingers (online platforms like NQ course for Moms at www.nutrition-quotient.com, blogs &content on food safety and nutrition and more) why don’t we explore how we can have a product that is just right?
Lets clearly understand that if we get a product that’s not right it’s because we are doing somethings that are not right. The check list goes as given:
It’s another important point to understand that the bloated packaging is an indication of something gone wrong…think twice before buying else the onus of getting a wronged product is only and surely on you.
I am sure this concise list of to dos will serve you well in buying a product that is good for you , your family and the earth. It will also save a lot of explaining and clearing their stands (every time a video on faulty product goes viral) for the companies that have invested a fortune in amazing technologies to serve with the right deal.
The only promise that you’ve got to make to yourself is that “I ll stop playing the Victim and take charge of what I get from this very moment”!!!
