OK, so every single Hello Kitty thing I have bought in the last few days (don't ask me how many because I went to Ichiban Kan *and* there was a pop-up HK store in the lobby of one of my hospitals for a fundraiser, OMG) was wrapped in a thin, clear layer of plastic that was folded over a gummed line on one end. Opening each package entailed finding the end with the gummed seal and pulling it open. Not one of the items was packaged in a hermetically sealed rigid plastic clamshell that required a boxcutter to penetrate.

Just saying.

what does this mean?

It means that Japanese packaging is much easier to open and much less wasteful, on balance, than American packaging.

They have a better handle on being less wasteful in general because they have so much less land and resources to work with than we do. And culturally it might be easier to get them to do things from the top down. We are obstinate, culturally.
