Morningstar Farms "reusable" ziploc bags NOT 'reusable'--ZIPPER HAS TO BE CUT OFF & "plastic" bag is NOT RECYCLABLE!!!!!!

RE Morningstar Farms Original grillers veggie burger, and other products in "reusable" ziplock bags!!! The 'ziplock' is WORTHLESS since the bag is sealed BELOW the 'zipper' an that 'zipper' has to be CUT OFF to get to the burgers!!! It has been this way on EVERY package since they started the new packaging!!! Contacted Morningstar and they ignored that part of my complaint!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They come in ANTI-ENVIRONMENTAL PACKAGES!!!! FALSELY claiming 'LESS' packaging--so LESS WASTE!!! Big LIE!!!! New packaging creates MORE WASTE in landfill!!!! They use to use RECYCLABLE boxes, but STOPPED packaging in RECYCLABLE paperboard boxes (with individual patties in cellophane SO the only thing in trash was tiny cellophane wrapper!!!) Now claiming new ziplock things are 'reusable' and less packaging---BUT that's a DOUBLE LIE!!! BECAUSE a couple of years ago, and they started using this NON-RECYCLABLE weird textured 'plastic' bags that CANNOT be recycled because they are REFUSED by recycling companies!!! SO the ENTIRE new SCAM PACKAGING GOES IN TRASH and LANDFILL!!! DOUBLY BAD packaging---ziplock has to be CUT OFF due to sealing way below the zipper part!!! Recycling companies REFUSE new 'plastic' so ENTIRE PACKAGE WRAPPER GOES IN LANDFILL!!! (Before box could be recycled and small cellophane only in waste!!!)

i completely agree that kelloggs/morningstar farms' plastic packaging DOES NOT RECYCLE and is anti-environment. As a VEGAN I used to enjoy many of this food producer's products, but NO MORE. KELLOGGS: CHANGE YOUR ANTI-ENVIRONMENT PACKAGING OR RISK BOYCOTT.
