Unreachable lamp bulbs
Today, I bought two lamp bulbs. The brand was ICA home. They were energy efficient bulbs consistent with the EU Green Policy Compliant RoHS, with low contents of Cadmium, Mercury etc. Some years ago these lamp bulbs were unusual and hard to find, but since the RoHS it's easier. On the package you can read that it should be recycled as hard plastic and paper. However, one thing irritates me a lot: it's almost impossible to get the bulb out of the package.

Why, dear producer, must there be such an impossible package which needs tools to get into? It ought to be possible to do a better package, or ??
