Anyone else find us weird?
Germany has milk in bags too, nothing weird about it. There are even those cans to hold the bag here, and some of the bags sole here can even stand on their own.
It's just less material to recycle, unless you buy milk in a glass bottle.
Milk in a bag? Wtf?
You can get milk in a bag here. Less waste.
Milk in a bag, never heard of such a thing. Seems so weird to me to have any liquid in a bag.
Seems annoying. The Chinese have been known to do it with beer as well.
Also Capri Sun.
I had a very confused look on my face the whole time I was watching this video! That's insane and she was thinking we (Americans) were the weird ones for not knowing anything about milk in a bag... I'm glad it's good for the environment though.
Very smugly done video, typical Canadian.
We had pint bags of milk like that in middle school (in the USA), it was the source of endless amusement to us because
1) They were vaguely breast-like and contain milk (remember we're talking 11-14 year old boys here).
2) They came with straws but it was very easy to accidentally poke the straw right through both sides of the bag, in which case you were screwed.
3. Once you have the bag punctured it made a wicked squirt gun.
Come to think of it, maybe we Americans just aren't grown up enough for milk in bags.
Bags are less to recycle, but its not like in the US all milk jugs go to a landfill. For instance, most composite deck material is made from wood chips and recycled milk jugs:
Im sure they are recycled into many things, not just deck boards.
One would think a gallon jug would be easier to store and use, but i've not ever bought milk in a bag or even seen it for sale around here.
I think bags probably pack smaller than cartons or jugs.
I have never seen milk in a bag! What!
Our milk bottles are reused anyways, no waste here. Cept for the metal caps I suppose, but what else am I to make Pogs out of?
They do claim that the bags allow lower transport costs. I would think it's possible to make square-based cartons that pack very tightly too. The triangular bit at the top is something of a problem though...
Liquids in thin plastic equals a disaster waiting to happen. I can't imagine letting a kid pour a bowl of cereal with that.
Read the link I posted above for how one of our supermarkets does it here: the bags go in a jug that pierces the bag, provides a spout to pour it and seals the container when you're not pouring it.
Milk, beer, Capri Sun - once it's in a bag, it all tastes the same...
The problem with milk in a bag is that you can't get the same sense of satisfaction you get from drinking straight from the jug.
Cool. Never knew milk in a bag existed. Dick in a box, yes.
The elementary school I went to (in California) started using milk in a bag in 1998. The only problem with them is if you poke the straw in without covering the other end with your finger, haha.
You won't wear a seat belt but you're worried about liquids in plastic being a disaster waiting to happen. OK then.
Do they really leave it in the bag like that? I'd pour the bag into a bottle or plastic container.
I remember that a long time ago they tried to introduce milk in a bag in the United States. I think it was in the 1970s. The idea went over like a lead balloon.
You forgot to add "in town".
I live in Québec, and for the 17 years I've been on earth, I have always drank milk from bags.
-No disgusting cardboard taste
-Stays fresher (smaller hole than carton)
-No gummy cardboard-milk mixture
Oh, and for those who think it mught rupture easily: it does not. They come in sacks of three 1.33 liter bags, so if one of these ever breaks (which happens very rarely) the milk will stay inside the outer bag.
Didn't most of us start off by drinking milk from mom's fun bags?
Bags are normal, anything else is weird
