Sometimes, when we find ourselves busy, maybe running the kids one place or another, or rushing to an event, we resort to fast food. Last night, while most of us had eaten a proper meal, our son had missed out because he went directly to the trampoline club without stopping at home. So later in the evening, after he was done, we ordered him a quarter chicken dinner from Swiss Chalet — take out. At right is a photo of all the plastic, Styrofoam and cardboard packaging which accompanied a single quarter chicken dinner. I was astonished. We have resolved not to order another meal from Swiss Chalet until it finds a way to reduce significantly the waste its product creates.
