I expect they will eventually

You have to be BONKERS to buy this, brain-washing or what...

2 litres of 0.75% fat Milk @ Tesco for the princely sum of 65p.

Give it time, I'm sure they will.

Organic would be nice too.

Sounds like a lot of bother to me and the chances of me using a jug thingy without spilling it............

We have Cravendale, last much longer so I don't have to go and get it so often - that's energy saving, right? ;-)

What a rediculous idea, taking the recycling/reusing thing a little to far now. Recycling plastic doesn't really take that much effort. Companies are trying to cash in on the "global warming" myth. A reusable milk container what a brilliant idea... oh wait we had those 100 years ago.

Ages ago when shopping online spotted these and thought "what a great idea!". Bought several to stick in the freezer, handy as I kept and washed out the plastic 2 litre containers milk normally comes in.

Day the shopping was delivered everything was covered in milk, what a mess! Kitchen floor ended up covered in it.

The packer(s) had put these bags in bags at the bottom of a crate then loaded bags of tins, etc, on top of them. Needless to say a couple of these split leaking milk over everything!

A right pain cleaning everything off and mopping up the mess but put the remainder in the freezer. Later when defrosted one of these ended up with a floor covered in milk as must have had a nick/hole in the bag so again had to clean up afterwards.

I won't be buying anything like these again, too much hassle and waste.

voted cold, dont see the point in wasting time in buying milk and then putting it in a jug you have to buy aswell.
nothing wrong with the recyclable plastic cartons the milk comes in now.
these new bags are a nightmare, have 1 leak on you and you will know about it! make sure you dont put it near anything pointy in your bags on the way home!
costco sell 6 pints of semi skimmed milk for £1.45 much better deal than this and I recycle that when ive finished with it. not going to pay £0.05 more for 2 pints less!

I thought it was bizarre that these arent at least a bit cheaper than the regular bottles. What's the point if you aint saving any cash?

carrot crunchers need not apply

Banned

the plastic bottles we already use are more recyclable than the rubbish plastic used here
on top of leaking (which is why tetrapaks are no longer used, the cardboard ones) and spilling on the floor trying to open

they will of course, make these a few pence cheaper to sucker us in, then jack up the price again, same as skimmed USED to be cheaper than regular

4 pints for £1.50. That's very expensive.
50% more than what I pay for 4 pints of semi skimmed milk.
Voted Cold.

This is nothing new. My grannie used to get milk delivered like this around 30 years ago up in the highlands.

If it wasn't for the Supermarkets in the first place, we would still have Milk Men and milk bottles resuable.

This is the S.H.I.T.E.S.S idea i have ever seen.:thinking:

Whatever next.

Why do they change things that already have been perfected i.e phone box,s, try smashing the windows on the OLD type ones (No chance)

And bus shelters that dont even shelter you from the elements.

F'ing world is going backwards

what a ******** idea, my old plastic bottle go on the fire & keep me warm, that's recycling, right?!

Milk delivery rounds used bagged milk in the 70's during busy times when bottles were short.Universally hated then. If a supermarket is deadly serious about cutting down on waste it's time to start selling milk in glass bottles with a deposit scheme. If you combined that with beer and carbonated drinks it would make a serious contribution to sustainability. However the supermarkets don't want the hassle.

Pah I get milk in a bottle from the local milkman because a) its supporting local business and b) we give the bottle back and its re-used so no waste except for the lid.

I remember my mother collecting the silver foil lids as the school collected them, not sure what they did with them though :?

ummm...haven't tried it myself, but went to my friend's house the other day and she was raving about them - I can see the point in terms of reducing waste - think it's something like 75% less packaging. She also says it's much easier to pour and because you don't actually put the milk in the jug other than in the bag, you only need to wash up the lid.

got mine free, one of the perks of working for them, you sometimes get the odd freebie, about the only perk lol

How did you get your free one? I work for Sainsbury's & haven't got one yet

they are giving out vouchers to staff for a bag of milk and a jug, see your HR dept

What a con!! Absolute rip-off all in the supposed name of the environment! No way would I buy these!!!

Another marketing gimmick to get you eventually pay more …. Come to think of it – the price is already more than present competition… Yup it a con.

Its not a new thing at all, they sell milk like this all over the world! Although I am not here to slate the idea I do have to wonder how throwing the bag away compares to recycling the bottle?

I can confirm I saw them in the 70's... now that may just have been on holiday in Scotland, as I was there a few times in the 70's, but I get the feeling they might have been around in the North East of England too.

I remember a jug for them - not like the one shown here, a much more simple affair with a spout, and you merely nipped the bag "nozzle" formed by the corner of the bag into a slit above the spout opening to "seal" it.

I know it's not new, they have been using MILK BAGS in Canada for yearsssssssssss.it's new to most Sainsbury's stores although it was on trial in many last year.

The bag is recyclable according to the JUGIT™ website

pop the empty milk bag into your recycling bin

You could by milk in a bag in Gibralter 28 years ago when my brother was born. But this isn't hot either.

Had them in the Shetlands when I worked there in 1980/81. Quite handy as fresh milk only arrived on the islands every other day and in the winter when sailings were delayed due bad weather you could use the ones you'd frozen. A very robust bag, you could stand on them.
However they were very difficult to pour from and eventually fell out of use. I've no idea why they've been reintroduced and when we were offered a free jugit jug in Sainsbury I turned it down as I'm not going to be using these again.
