    The majority of food I buy isn't packaged, so not at all. 

    Remember it's often the packaging that is the price difference, nothing more.

    Yeah alot of things like coke or food the tins or packaging etc cost more than the product.

    Also there is a massive ammount of unnecessary rubbish is produced eveey day every day. Tons every day.

    The biggest cost in Coke is transportation from memory.

    As to weather or not the packaging is unnecessary, I think your first post says it is.  Attractive packaging sells, that's why it exists.

    Don't really buy packaged stuff - usually fruit/veg, meat, frozen meat, water.

    It's why if you go into Aldi/Lidl, eveything looks 90% like the major brands.  Packaging sells.

    Landfills are almost entirely plastics and food waste these days.  Most other things head off for recycling etc.
