chicken to-go

Sometimes I buy a roasted chicken at our local market for our dinner.
Usually the chicken is in a plastic tray and cover under the warming lamp, waiting for me to choose it and take it home.

I was super-surprised to see that they are experimenting with a new packaging idea. The chicken is on a paperboard tray and in a paper bag. There is a plastic window on the front of the bag. Except for that bit, the whole thing is compostable! Gotta love that.

I too occasionally buy a rotisserie chicken and I just HATE the plastic packaging that immediately goes in the trash. I sure hope my local stores catch on to this trend...and fast!
