Many environmentally-conscious people take it upon themselves to recycle plastic and glass bottles to reduce their carbon footprint. However, it's large corporations that contribute to plastic waste the most, which means even the smallest reduction in waste can make a pretty big difference. So when Walmart says it will no longer supply English cucumbers wrapped in plastic, it's a bigger deal than it may seem.

Now, at select Walmart locations, the produce section will feature English cucumbers supplied by Houweling's Group thanks to a partnership with the company, Apeel. Cucumbers from Apeel aren't packaged with plastic, a method that many vegetable producers use to help increase fresh produce's shelf-life. Instead, Apeel cucumbers are engineered to have a protective peel that's edible and made from plants—not chemicals. (Related: 108 Most Popular Sodas Ranked By How Toxic They Are)
