Packaging is designed to protect and preserve the product it contains, but sometimes it goes too far. It’s hard to find something recyclable in today’s world, but what about when everything you see–from the product to the packaging it comes in–is designed to be disposable? I’m not going to lie, when I came across these photos of unnecessarily packaged products, I laughed. But then I got angry. Why do companies think that this is okay? Seriously, who came up with some of this stuff? And more importantly, why? It’s wasteful, and it’s unnecessary.

Scroll down to see the very worst offenders and let us know in the comments what the very worst example was that you’ve seen with your own two eyes Trust us, you’re going to need it.
