Green bread tie

A billion bread ties a year or more, less plastic, and people more likely to get bread with the green bread tie

A new, ecologically green bread tie. 100 million of those a week (200 million including Europe), ten billion green bread ties a year and you stand to make more than a million

Implementation is obvious but polylactic acid plastic and other biopolymer [,] is one approach, as is making a friendly looking circular disk out of whatever they make eco-straws out of.

       [+] They're banning plastic straws ; I use about the same amount of plastic in bread-bag ties.

       Hang on. I may be missing something here. Is the aim to make ties out of biopolymers? Is the green bread merely a red herring?

       Moldy jokes aside, [+] for PLA or PCL bag closures. I'd be surprised if some companies aren't already doing it.

       Oh my holy crap. OK. It's a "green [bread-tie]" where [bread- tie] is the thing that closes the bag the bread came in. I truly thought we were talking about some sort of bread-derived neckwear. Methinks I should pop my nasal oxygen cannula back in for a bit.

       Good idea; try putting it in your nose, this time.

       Although that appears to be good advice, I would normally caution against actually implementing any of [8th]'s ideas on the application of pure oxygen.

       INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
1. Take slice of bread. (top tip - slice loaf lengthwise for a longer slice)
2. Leave in a moist place for a few days. Check every six hours and apply dampness if there is danger of drying out.
3. If bread has gone blue or yellow, discard and go to step 1.
4. Remove green bread from damp place, and dry in warm air.
5. Apply to collar of shirt so slice of green bread hangs down in front of shirt buttons.

       The great "green bread" communication breakdown. I was laughing so hard I almost snorted my green tea. Ha.

       Egads! The kraft paper iron core already exists and is biodegradable. I was unable to find the [,] variety though.

       [pocmloc] So close.   

       5. Apply to collar of shirt using 'green' bread-tie so slice of green bread hangs down in front of shirt buttons .

       I just finished The King in Yellow if that helps? Can't recommend, turgid etc.
