And Jugs?

Wait a minute, just looked up milk jugs and that's what we've got but i never heard them called jugs before.

Never seen a bag of milk before that vid either.

That's cause you live in the Kentuky of the west... :whip: here in PA, the dairy producers to Hershey chocolate, I can go into a store and buy a milk bag.

More mind blowing geet, there are special milk bag pitchers with little doohickeys at the top by the spout to help seal the bag when not in use.

They tried milk bags in the UK for a while, about 3-4 years ago. You had to buy special jugs to put the bags in. The trouble was that the milk in the bags cost more than it did in the usual carton.

Canadian Design Resource wrote:Bags of Milk
One of the first things that a visitor to Canada will notice in the home of most families is the liters of milk that is bought in plastic bags. This packing was adopted to reduce waste and to reduce the resources needed to ship the product but in the end the cultural eccentricity that this embodies is defining. A quiet design icon.

Once you take one of the three bags out, you put it in one of these:

And, then you snip it with one of these:

Voila:

p.s. apologies for the out-of-proportion pictures!

A lot messier, requires washing the jug out, easier to have spillages or leaks, milk will have less life once opened (fractionally), requires more work to actually get to you're milk, requires you to refill...

He sure has put me off Canada for life.

it has saved Canadians ten billion dollars, twenty trillion tons of waste and fifty thousand hectares of landfill space since its inception. no wonder they don't do it in the US.

But it's dumb, there could be much better ways than bags...

Also in the UK since like 2005 the UK has recycled like 99% of milk bottles and something like 80% of milk-cartons which isn't too far behind Canada in this respect
