Shopping for Thanksgiving's Bounty with DuPont

Cellophane was invented in 1900, thirty-some years before this ad ran for DuPont's version of the plastic. Now the sexism (and bad poetry) along with the Hermie the Dentist Elf heads are about all that stand out. Cellophane no longer is the plastic of choice for wrapping most food products and we've sank deeper into petro-chemical culture. No doubt we'll all be purchasing dozens of plastic-wrapped ingredients this Thanksgiving season, from turkey to potatoes.
