My answer: Yep, sure is. Milk is bags?! That's weird. I quickly sent an email to Amber over at Unstuffed (she's Canadain) who confirmed that in Canada, milk is in fact available in bags. (She also added that the organic milk she buys comes in returnable bottles).
The point of the treehungger article was to say that milk that comes in bags uses 75% less material then the jugs that American's buy. The article goes on to say that the UK is expected to keep 100,000 tons of plastic out of landfills by switching to bagged milk.
Firefly and I drink rice milk that we buy in small 1/4gal boxes. These are sadly not recyclable. I have however been thinking that about learning how to make our own rice milk here and thus eliminating this source of trash.
How do you get your milk and what kind of container is it in? Anyone have a recipe for rice (or almond) milk?
