Laser Etched Labels on Fruit

Found this great article on Physorg.com about Laser Etching Grapefruit and how various studies have shown that grapefruits that had labels etched into the rinds via a laser showed no measurable loss of water or increase in decay while undergoing transport. This means Laser Etching produce is likely to become an alternative to sticker labels which saves the trees it takes to make the labels as well as the fact that labels fall off, get ruined by being wet and the annoying hassle of having to remove them.

etchI  personally think Laser etching makes much more sense as the labels are just temporary until the product is purchased and in the case of fruits and vegetables with outer layers that are removed, you save the paper product by just etching them with a laser.
