Convenience Products And The Environment-How Ridiculous Can You Get?

Earth Day was just one day ago, and here I am watching the Today Show and a pancake product was shown-The Batter Blaster. No kidding, this is a can that sprays out pancake batter like canned cheese. Just point, blast and cook! UGH!

I thought that Bisquick's Shake 'n' Pour was bad enough, but this is just mind boggling!

Think of the landfill waste that these lazy, "lowest common denominator" products produce. Not to mention, the unrenewable resources which are used to make them.
To make pancakes, why can't people mix flour, baking powder, milk, and eggs together?? How hard is it? And use a mixing bowl, not a plastic-one-time-use-container!

What other products are really easy to make (even for non-foodies), but are turned into wasteful convenience products?
