Why......in the year 2013, do we still serve school milk in the stupid paper cartons? You know, the kind where you have to practically rip the thing apart just to open it?

I open about ten of these every day. I hate these things. Hate them!

Surely to goodness there's a better way to package milk. Bah.

/rant. Now back to work.

When I was in school they served milk in a bag lol.
Stab the straw in and go.
Just cut the top off with scissors.

Maybe try something else for a change:

Rice milk, almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk

Give the cows a break!!

Edit to Add:
Are the milk cartons lined with a plastic coating on the inside?
If so, does the plastic contain BPA? ("Bisphenol A")

Milk cartons are second only to glass in storing milk. Plastic leaches petrochemicals.

This is the very reason I gave up drinking milk last year.

In Canada, milk do come in cartons, but most have the plastic tabs now, that you can open and close. However, those small 250ml cartons still have the stupid paper nozzle.

Ahhhh the old milk in carton trick
They use this ploy to anger you so that the kids get scary miss and don't step out of line, It's an old illuminate trick.
They also put some loose sugar in top of the bag, just a heads up. This may cost me my family

Two words. Cost Effectiveness. Paper milk cartons are and allways will be the cheapest form to package milk products. Schools especially, because the cost involved. Unless you just wanted to bring a big ole milker in and let the kids go at those teats.

On a more serious note.A paper milk carton was the first medium used in the program to help locate missing children. Etan Patz was the first missing child to ever grace a milk carton. If doing away with milk cartons would do away with missing kids, I say throw them all away.
