Milk: Plastic or Glass?

Deciphering between packaging for items like milk, a beverage staple in many households, can sometimes be confusing if you are trying to purchase the most eco-friendly choice.

Probably the most prevalent milk container in the U.S. is the plastic variety, usually made from HDPE, or No. 2 plastic. Though this is a recyclable plastic, milk containers are not reprocessed into new ones due to regulations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration about using new packaging for foods for safety reasons.Therefore, recycled plastic milk containers are usually turned into things like toothbrushes and toys.
