Grocery store, chicken in pouches so it can go straight in frying pan so millennial's wont have to touch it raw.

Yep. They do get grungy and icky.

If people REALLY wanted to be environmentally friendly - then they'd be encouraging stores to use boxes. Stores have a bazillion of them. Back in the day, before my time even, that's what stores used. Now, they just crush them and recycle them, pocketing the money. Some places won't even give them to people anymore, meaning you now buy boxes to move instead of repurposing them from stores.

I do like the idea of protecting the environment - but I'm also practical. Old fashioned brown bags were used for cookies, book covers and garbage bags - there was no waste really. The current plastic bags used to be sturdy enough to use for garbage and as tote bags that you used until the handles broke - but now they're so thin, they barely get your groceries in the door....you can't really repurpose them. So there's the real answer - find a product that is environmentally friendly to make, and that can be repurposed until it falls apart. Also, for a brief time, grocery stores had recycle bins for the plastic bags - I don't know why they got rid of them, but they should bring them back too.

A supermarket is to introduce touch-free packaging to help millennials who are afraid to handle raw meat.

Sainsbury’s  will be bringing in pouches that allows customers to place chicken pieces straight into a frying pan without having touch them.

Any prospect of having to be in contact with the raw produce left the millennials with high levels of anxiety, the store’s survey showed.

They will starve if they ever have to kill something to eat it.

They've been doing that around here for over a year. It's usually the boneless chicken breasts sold as "organic" or "free range" or some other term. I buy them to cook on the grill. Everything I cook gets a thorough washing in the sink before it gets cooked, so the plastic vacuum pouches are just an annoyance. I have to use scissors to cut them open.
Get over it or die mad.
