I mean truly biodegradable, as in made from a cardboard outer box made from pulped recycled cardboard and a biodegradable plastic inner liner made from corn starch. Would you be interested in buying your milk this way? I know most people probably recycle their plastic milk jugs, but this is an even better solution from Green Bottle. Once the bottle is used, the liner is removed and the bag can be disposed of in the general rubbish where it will decompose. The cardboard box exterior can be recycled like paper, and if not recycled, the whole bottle will compost at a landfill. Pretty nifty, no? Right now it seems to only be in the UK, but hopefully this technology will be here in the U.S. soon.
