:lol: :lol: ... notice also that it coincides with the trend for manufacturers to weld plastic labels onto jars so that it is harder to remove them for use as home-made jam jars with a decent appearance!

what a bizarre trend - and who in their right mind would take a glass jam jar filled with stuff in their packed lunch‽‽‽

A long time ago, before recycling collections, my dad discovered that his post graduate students were buying empty wine bottles for their home winemaking
after a bit of negotiation an empty crate was placed under the table in the postgraduate common room and filled with empty bottles by the lecturers :D everyone was happy

I find the labels come off fine from premium jam (Tiptree) and Aldi and Lidl, nothingin between :(
I do not put glass in a pack up
