I love milk. I always have. I love milk with cookies and cereal but I'm also quirky in that I love milk with pizza, spaghetti, even a burger. :-) But I am not thrilled with the plastic milk containers. They take up so much room in the fridge and are heavy to pour when it is a fresh gallon.
Recently, on a trip to HomeGoods, I saw this little beauty. It is a bluish clear glass with a sealed top and has the image of a cow being milked on the front. It was only $4.99 and so I couldn't pass it up. A few days later I saw this smaller bottle at the Christmas Tree Shops and it was only $1.99.
Now, when I bring home milk, I pour it into the bottles, rinse out the plastic gallon and recycle it. Did you know, according to the EPA, only 29% of the plastic milk containers get recycled. The rest end up in the landfills.
That is awful when so many amazing things are made out recycled milk cartons. Like an igloo. :-)
It may just be my imagination but the milk seems colder and tastes better coming out of a glass bottle. And it looks so much cuter on the kitchen table at meal time. Give it a try! Once you go glass, you'll never go back!
