I think the way American businesses package their products could do with a few changes, not the least of which would be making it so I could actually get to the product I just bought.
- A potato chip bag that tears open completely at the top seal without me deforming the bag by seven feet.
- Frozen veggie bags that don't require a knife to open
- Eggs that crack properly - yes fresh eggs are tougher, but fresh eggs don't run all over the pan. These aren't fresh eggs.
- Salad bags that don't decorate the floor with a confetti of lettuce
- A pull tab that opens the bottle (or this morning, the box of coconut milk) instead of tearing free.
- Products that come in recyclable paper boxes instead of thermally sealed plastic designed to handle globe warming, global cooling, thermonuclear war, and the average homeowner with a paring knife.
I get that manufacturers are trying to reduce breakage and spoilage. I'm pretty near certain that they have forgotten, or more likely, decided to ignore, the person buying their products.
