Who’s idea was it to put a PLASTIC screw top smack bang in the middle of a perfectly good paper container.
Surely on a waste / recycling level this can’t be good. Wouldn’t the recyclers have to somehow separate the plastic from the paper? Doesn’t this make the job harder and therefore more expensive?
If it was done to make it easier to open I encourage anyone to try and open the seal behind the screw top. I almost bled trying to do it! Are we that hopeless that we can’t open a simple milk carton?
I have always felt the flip top milk carton to be an ingenious invention. Why would anyone feel the need to try and improve on it.
By the way, the story behind the milk carton (or tetra pak as it is known) is a fascinating one. If you are interested see here.
