Really cool read. I question the (perhaps, implied) notion that city regulations can't control packaging. On a municipal level, for sure. However, I would think that the growing number of municipalities that are strapped with an expensive garbage/ landfill crisis would become a fairly loud voice in the lobby to regulate packaging.

I don't know too many 'consumers' who are endeared by massive amounts of packaging -- consciously, anyway. Generally, the fight for shelf space and retail exposure drives the packaging arms race.

And, the only way to combat that is for government regulations to stop it. There's simply no consumer choice in that regard to choose otherwise...even if they're inclined to bother doing it.
