Plastic paper protects Morrisons Mushrooms

Recycling can be a difficult business, and big grocery stores don't make it easy. Whilst I can just about understand the Health and Safety reasons for wrapping up every vegetable in the fearful UK, there are some things that are just plain confounding. For instance, the following information given on my mushroom bag:

This packaging can not be recycled. But because we care about the environment we are working on it.

Clearly, Morrisons has not quite caught onto that not-so-modern concept of paper packaging. The ancient Egyptians used it, many other stores use it, but not Morrisons. For some unfathomable reason, they put a thin sliver of plastic in the bag, presumably so you can keep an eye on your mushrooms, just to make sure they are safe.

This really is one of the strangest things I have seen, but at least "they are working on it". Who knows what this involves. Perhaps a collaboration with the high-end scientists who came up with The Seven Signs of Aging.
