No it's fluid milk in a plastic bag. Sainsbury promote this as a way to cut down on waste plastic cartons. Store the milk in a reuseable jug.

Voting COLD and telling people why should be a criminal offence.

NOT telling people why you voted COLD that should be, apologies

Aren't plastic bottles recyclable, whereas plastic bags aren't?

I started using these bags but soon stopped due to the bags leaking on nearly every shopping trip!

Still a good price for 4 pints of milk though.

I think some bags are recyclable depending on the thickness and type of plastic used.

Cold. Two reasons:Who in their right mind would buy milk in a bag. 2ltr for 75P in farmfoods.

Most people will throw away the carton or bag rather than recycle anyway so I guess its less plastic to go to waste.
4 pints is 4 pints and £1 is a good price. Not everyone lives near a farmfoods, but sainsburys are everywhere

Well thats a new one for me. I wouldnt buy it for the main reason as mentioned above. Knowing my luck it would leak everywhere, and sweaty milk stinks to high heaven.

It is a good price, but im not voting because of the packaging.

They should just have a milk station. You buy a reuseable container, take the container back next time you need milk and the shop cleans the bottle for the next person, and you take a clean one home with the milk in. Like they used to do with those bottles of pop you could buy moons ago. If its the amount of waste there trying to save then this would be perfect and more user friendly. Id go for it.

Just like the good old days when all drinks were in glass bottles. Part of the purchase price was a deposit which the shop refunded when the empty bottle was returned. The delivery lorry took all the empties back to the manufacturer for recycling. That seemed like an ideal solution to me but it got phased out when everyone switched to plastic containers.

I use these are a wicked idea never had one leak

Morrisons have cartons of 4.23 pints for £1 and that's not an offer it's just what you pay!

In ASDA or Tesco you anyways get 2 for £2.00 of 4 pints jug/jar which is 8 pint in total

Is there anything special in this milk

Cold from me... Poundland sell milk for a quid too, and there's comes in a handy plastic bottle, complete with handle, and it fits nicely in the door of the fridge!

Only kidding... hot hot hot! Good find.

OK if you don't mind it going off quicker...

A bag of milk, HAHA. What next, a bottle of cornflakes.

They also sell a jug that is made for these types of bags for 1.98. You actually put the bag in to the jug itself rather than pouring it out. But if you are really frugal, you can always REUSE another milk bottle (washed of course), and pour it in. Bit of a hassle for saving a few pence I suppose. Anyway, word of warning, one of the milk bags had curdled, well within its BBE date. Just hope that's a one off and not a common theme for these milk bags...

The jug used with these bags is currently half-price at 98p.

They use these exclusively in Canada. Word of warning though; this milk goes off faster because you have a cut open bag sitting in a jug rather than an airtight bottle.

Cracking price and voted hot but I hope it's not the farmers that are getting screwed regarding the price.

voted cold because i am lactose intolerant

i agree i would bin this bag after use rather were as we recycle all the milk bottles

Why?

It's just as easy to stick the bags in the recycling (pink) bin...

Just give them a quick rinse and perfectly recyclable. In the long run, it would use less packaging than bottles.

No, that's iodine deficiency

The 4 pints in a "normal" container is always £1 in sainsburys...so im voting cold SORRY

If you are that concerned about the environment, why dont you just buy a cow....saves having to recycle anything...plus you get some great beef dinners at the end of it all (and shoes and maybe a jacket)

Makes me laugh that supermarkets bang the "recycle and save the planet drum" ... and then run their air conditioning 24/7

I agree.....recycling and "carbon Footprint" blah blah blah...will be known in the future as the biggest con of the early 21st century. Its a huge money making scheme that the world has embraced blindly without much thought.


Its like they want plastics collected seperately and say how amazing it is cos its saving the environment......but what they fail to mention is the extra carbon pumped into the atmosphere to send the extra trucks out to collect this plastic from hundreds of thousands of locations every day actually makes its a total red-herring.

Much like anything which is seal packaged like cheese for example if you get a pin pr1ck hole in the bag which you can't see it will lose it's freshness.

They band CFCs and introduced treaties and legislation to restrict sulphur dioxide emissions.... (_;)
