With hybrid packaging I refer to the combined packaging of plastic and paper. They are often offered by supermarkets for consumers to put inside fresh bread and buns. The reasons I can imagine for using these hybrids:
- Visibility at the cashier allowing the cashier to quickly screen the containing products;
- Convenience for the consumer allowing him to easily see what he has bought without having to open the packaging, e.g when arriving home;
However, these advantages come with a huge downside. For the consumer hybrid packaging poses an extra burden for waste separation. It requires him to cut the plastic from the paper. I assume that in practice not many consumers follow this behaviour accordingly.
