At last! A good example that's already out there.

I remember Jordan's cereal manufacturers in Britain once packaging their
500g muesli in a clear cellulose wrapper, with a note printed on it
explaining that the wrapper would rot if allowed to after use. Not sure
what they use now, but they don't advertise it.

Is there anything else like that around? Why not?? Come on, somebody
start a trend... please...
