Frito Lay Canada didn't can the biodegradable SunChips bag design that was pulled from shelves as "too noisy" in the States (apparently up there, they trust shoppers to understand the bag's environmental benefits outweigh its more audible crinkles). And significantly, your health department led the world in declaring BPA toxic -- and so the chemical will be phased out of canned food and beverage linings. One wishes the U.S. would follow suit.
