This isn't really about home repair, but am I the only person in the world
who has reached wits' end with modern packaging?
From batteries to sliced baloney, packages impossible to open without using
some kind of tool, and often difficult even when using a tool like pliers.
And many products, especially over-the-counter health products, have (1) a
plastic ring around the cap, (2) a foil sheet over the opening, and (3) a
wad of cotton inside the bottle.
It's time for a revolt against this sort of abuse. I'm organizing Citizens
Against Stupid Packaging (CASP).
Anyone may join by sending me $5. PayPal accepted. Your name will be placed
on the Founders' List.
I agree about dumb packaging, but my $5.00 would be better spent writing
to retailers and manufactures explaining my displeasure and spreading the
word so other will do the same. Avoiding the brands that are packaged like
that will be the most effective, and free, method of getting results.
Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention
And WHAT the hell is it with drinking straws nowadays? The paper is on so
tight it's impossible to shove off by banging it against something anymore.
But perhaps the worst packaging I've seen is people scamming for money for
silly causes on the internet ;)
I don't know the OP but jees......it was tongue in cheek. A joke.
Chill. There wasn't even an address.
I love this NG for everyday help. Thanks

On a serious note:
I always wondered how they got those foil disck stuck onto bottles and
jars. I recently learned that there's heat activated adhesive on the
underside and induction heating of the foil is used to melt the glue
onto the bottle.
