Free Milk Jug Giveaway @ Sainsburys - Sat 15th

To support customers who want to make the change from bottles to bags, 500 Sainsbury's stores across the UK will be giving away JUGIT (TM) containers on Saturday 15 May. The reusable JUGIT (TM) containers are used to hold a milk bag and contain a spike that pierces the bag, forms a no-leak seal, and delivers milk through the spout.

Thanks. How do i see at which stores this is being held?
i think this is all stores for Make a Difference day
Do they distribute them at the moment the stores open i.e. 6am?
Currently available in semi-skimmed 2pt packs, the milk bags cost six pence less than a standard 2pt bottle of milk.
The success of the bag and JUGIT (TM) is such that the company is now looking at the possibility of rolling it out further across its milk ranges.
Thanks, i'll pop to my local store
i've already got one of these and they are brilliant, you can freeze the milk and they take up alot less space. So heat added
If you use half a bag, how do you store it (can u re seal the bag???)
My partner works there, so I've got one already. They're pretty good. They don't leak and yeah, you're throwing out a lot less waste. However, the price of the milk in the bags you use is NOT CHEAPER. I'm no economics whizz, but the way I see it, less packaging = cheaper production(?) = cheaper product. I'm getting sick of every retailer jumping on the green bandwagon and using it as a cash cow. Do they think we are freakin thick??? I've stopped using it for this reason and I'll probably throw the jug out because it's taking up room now and it can't really be used for anything else. :x
Glancy, once they are pierced, you cannot reseal them. Nor would you really want to either.

I have one of these and thought they were great but Sainsburys never had the milk in stock. So after coughing up £1.80 for a jug and two bags, I was left with a jug that I could not use.

When ever we asked, we were very lucky if they had any out the back.

That might just be my local (Team Valley, Gateshead) though.

The bag actually goes in the jug itself and is then pierced inside so no need to reseal anything as its all inside the jug.
i currently buy sainsburys 2 bottles of 4pnt for £2 for the pair (orange top 1% fat).. surely the bags are pricier than that..

can the jug not be used for water etc?
I want to buy my milk by the gallon. We go through so much, I think it might be cheaper to buy a cow. Would save me mowing the lawn, too.
This is a good freebie for those who use milk in a bag, which I last saw at my high school cafeteria back in '01. Anyway, I wanted to also give a shout-out to glass-bottle milk delivery. We get the organic version delivered and it's great - no more going out to buy milk and the bottles are re-used. There's no going back.
My dad's had one of these on test for a few months now and he loves it. This is such a good move, I hope other supermarkets follow.
Perhaps one day milk will come in glass bottles which you just give back to be reused. That would eliminate waste.

What an awesome idea (in a blond voice). Really though, makes one wonder why they changed away from these...
Because they break and can;t seal easily etc.

So why not u hand back ur milk bottle (plastic one) and it get cleaned and reused?
It's a nice idea but why don't we all revert back to using a milk man and glass bottles!

I remember as a little girl my nan having reusable shopping bags and now looks what's happened to their revival :)
I love (milk) jugs
Sorry :)
It is crazy how it does not work out cheaper to get these bags. The saving on a 4 pint normal container is like 3p.

Back home in Colombia and I guess South America, these are the norm. But no way with a saving like that, its worth it.
were all of to sainsburys - hope they last
