Why do they make milk in a plastic or a paper container when one is clearly better for the environment?

    Which is clearly better? I think they both have trade offs…. Paper containers are biodegradable and recyclable, yet you have to cut down a tree in order to make the paper for the carton. Plastic containers aren’t biodegradable but can be recycled and reused many times. It most likely has to do with cost effectiveness, it is probably much cheaper to make the containers out of plastic.
