I grew up on bagged milk. I always thought this was the norm but soon discovered that many people bought cartons instead. I don’t understand why because buying bagged milk is more cost effective not to mention better for the environment. You pay the same amount of money for 4 L of bagged milk as for 2L of a carton of milk. Moreover it takes less energy to produce bags for the milk than it does for the cartons. And finally, bags can be reused for all sorts of things like a snack for lunch or elastic bands or even to hold your icing as you frost a cake. We buy the local milk which also happens to be hormone and antibiotic free.
