Are cardboard milk jugs better than plastic ones?



  1. 0 Votes

    Cardboard milk jugs are thought to be better than plastic ones because the plastic ones light light through, which depletes the milk of important vitamins. Light decreased the percentage of vitamin A in milk by 70% and can decrease its riboflavin by 20% in three days. It has also been shown to loose flavor. However, the cardboard jugs cannot be recycled because they have a wax coating inside. So plastic is better because it can be recycled, and cardboard is better for nutrition and taste. I’d recommend glass, it is reusable and you can get a refund for part of the purchase price when you return it.
