Tesco tests safety bags created by Cheil HK to combat toxic pesticides on fruit + vegetables

Tesco Safty Bags.jpgCheil Worldwide Hong Kong and Tesco China have created 'Safety Bags,' a bag that removes harmful pesticides to help protect people from contaminated fruit and veg. The bags use photocatalysis, a process that breaks down compounds using the power of light, and is proven to destroy toxic chemicals, including pesticides. Tesco is currently trialling the bags after one Greepeace study found that up to 90% of all fruit and vegetables sold in China contained pesticide residues.



I think its great, but... said:

There's a logic error here. We created these bags because our produce is full of harmful chemicals and pesticides? Wouldn't they be more authentic by having higher and more vigilant safety and health standards?
