A Letter to big and smaller scale music record labels: Please stop the plastic jewel cases for CDs instead go w/ cardboard

Today I talk about something I hope will be put to rest and could potentially increase the sale of CDs and that I am not sure if it is known or not but if it isn't then I want to bring it up. I do buy music CDs especially as I have gotten older but there is one thing that makes me shrink when it comes to the current availability of CDs. That is the packaging. 

I strongly believe for CDs to ever gain a bigger foothold in people's minds, record labels big or small, need to stop manufacturing plastic jewel cases. They aren't very attractive and they scratch easily.

And one thing I have noticed about some releases recently is what they are doing for vinyl LPs could work for CDs and much better. All the more because CDs are practical. In these vinyl LP releases they utilize laminated cardboard sleeves and inside have the record, then why not reproduce this same approach for CDs? And yes non-laminated cardboard would be fine too. It would be even easier what with the smaller cardboard to be used for a CD's size. In my book, this could essentially make the idea of buying CDs more appealing especially versus having to buy often unattractive plastic jewel cased CDs. Just a thought. Even digipaks would be preferable.
