I recall very few products from childhood till now that have not undergone substantial changes in packaging and presentation. For example, a gallon of paint always came in round metal cans; now, the containers are plastic and rectangular. Potato chips came in paper bags; now the bags are plastic. Milk came in glass bottles; now plastic. Carbonated beverages came in tin cans that we opened with a can opener, now aluminum with pull tabs. Yes, the marvels of technology abound for the contemporary consumer. But, oh, so much plastic??
Thus, it’s refreshing to see a product whose packaging over the years remains unchanged:
To wit, the humble container of salt! As 50 plus years ago, still cylindrical in shape, still cardboard, still the same size, still with a pop-up pouring spout.
Vraiment, un object d’art et simplicite’!
