Polypropylene Orange Crate

I bought a box of Clementine oranges over the holidays.  The packaging was not the usual "wood/cardboard crate-with-netting", but instead was a made from polypropylene sheetstock.  These particular oranges were distributed by Ocean Spray (Don't think that they grow too many oranges in the bogs of New England and Wisconsin, but I've never been sold on this Global Warming thing anyway. Maybe I should pay more attention.)  I'm surprised, as I would have thought that it would be more expensive than the older style packaging.
