I've got your green product, right here.

We get a lot of products over here at Men's Fitness. Various companies send us stuff in the hopes that we'll write a glowing review, passing on our endorsement to our readers. One of the most popular types of products we get in are green or organic foods. We get chips, cookies, drinks - almost everything can be made "green," it seems.

So it always seems to surprise me when I got a product delivered, claiming to be good for the environment, and the box it arrives in is loaded up with styrofoam packing peanuts. What good is organic, gluten-free anything, if it's sealed up in a box with a material that does not decompose?

Styrofoam will be in our landfills forever. Hopefully the trend of green products being shipped with it will not be.
