quote: Europe must know how to protect the environment, but never to the detriment of the specific characteristics of its member states.

Heavy coal users in Eastern member states will be pleased to hear that.

Being a veggie I love cheeses and have tried very many over the years. My current fave is English extra strong Cheddar. and I also love Gorgonzola and Stilton. But Camembert and Brie, I do not like very much, they are to soft and not tasty enough.

If forced into something easier to recycle like plastic, the perfect breathing of the cheese through wood might otherwise get sweaty and flabby. Wood, though, is very hard to recycle sustainably, so the EU plans to move it out of food packaging as much as possible.

Are they smoking crack?

Plastic is 1000000 times worse for the environment, trees can be replanted, wood composted!

90% of plastic isn't recycled!

If the wood ends up in a landfill, it isn't going to biodegrade very well/quickly. Plastic has the advantage of being extremely low energy to generate compared to glass and metal, so it is a case of choose your poison.

I love a nice bit of French Camembert, also like Ophelia said my favourite is English mature cheddar, lovely taste and very versatile.
