    I posted this message on facebook and also asked Driscolls directly on their facebook page to reconsider their plastic packaging: ACHS.edu is participating in the Plastic Free Ecochallenge for the month of July. As part of that I reached out to Driscoll's https://www.facebook.com/DriscollsBerries/ who grow wonderful organic strawberries but package them in plastic. These plastic clam shell containers now have to go in trash as there is no recycling of them here in Portland. I imagine them littering beaches worldwide. Please Driscoll's consider the alternatives.
