I do sympathize with reactions such as this (link): apparently, some Twitter woman started #orangegate by stating in her original post "If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn't need to waste so much plastic on them" which subsequently had disabled bloggers to complain that they needed pre-peeled fruit for some reason. The reason to not sell prepeeled fruit boils down to environmental issues. - To this, there are a few things to say from my hand(s) on experience:

  1. fresh fruit rot a lot faster than preserved fruit (as in: dried, boiled, etc.), so really anyone after environmentally conscious will eat preserved sausage, pickled cucumbers and dried apples; everyone that buys fresh stuff particularly out of season has totally lost it regarding that line of argument; so this is Switzerland and it is winter - that means, taters and cheese;
  2. fresh food generally causes one to shop far more frequently, it causes refrigeration, it causes frequent wholesale transports, so that should be all of y'all's concern really;
  3. as person with carrying and lifting restriction, I shop frequently and little amounts already, in context of my disability, so if anyone has an excuse to go shopping more than once every 4 weeks it is the people that have difficulty lifting and carrying, transporting and shifting too much wares at once; so fresh oranges are specifically for the disabled, everyone else please consider the pickled sausages or the salt sticks;
  4. and besides all that, there are many tricks about how to cut up fruit intelligently, just as there are really good tricks on how to, say, put on a duvet cover intelligently; but is "clever" used in that context anywhere?

Now, here is how peeling is done easily and cleverly with an orange.

From (link):

1 cut orange into slices

2 cut slice radially from perimeter to center

3 roll peel curvature to a flat position

4 pick off pieces
