Wrapper Rage

Wrapper Rage

Have you experienced wrapper rage? We have, which is why we ended up blogging about can openers as a simple and quick solution to dealing with seemingly bulletproof packaging. While this approach definitely works, wouldn't it be nice to be able to open up your new gadget without having to completely destroy the packaging or risk bleeding?

Also, it turns out that most municipalities don't actually pick up this type of packaging for recycling curbside. Is there really no way to ship product in a recyclable package that does not require tools to open? A survey conducted by Southern Methodist University found that nearly 80 per cent of the respondents "expressed anger, frustration or outright rage" with plastic packaging materials. Something has to be done about this.
