I'm all for a reduction in the use of plastic and plastic recycling but have to draw the line when it comes to intensive potato farming to keep up with the demand of new materials. 

 

Disgusted!

Cool that they're looking for other methods though.

They’re made using waste potatoes @nefarius. Think of all those lonely potatoes sitting unwanted and then being given a new lease of life with a new and exiting purpose. Being a potato has never looked so good.

My bad.  I bought a small bag, but a lot of them sprouted.  Fortunately the last few will go into my food waste caddy.  There are many solutions to food packaging, but they cost more and business has been relucant to explore the options as it does not want to bear the cost and is fearful of consumer reaction should a levy be passed to them.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

Those poor potatoes @majorincident. Think of their futures. The hopes and dream their little potato parents had for them, all dashed, never to have the opportunity to be what a potato might want to be. Oh the calamity. 😢 (I think the Raki the neighbour gave me is a bit stronger than last time 🤪)

Poor potatoes. They get boiled, mashed, chipped, and roasted alive. Now they get turned into bags to put other potatoes in who are going to suffer that fate.
