by latest innovation. A new milk bottle.

Only 7 years of landfill capacity left?

The guy who invented the milk carton became a multi millionaire I think.

I am sure we are using more milk. A few years ago it was a couple of pints a week and now more foods are ready "milked" like custard and hot chocolate, we seem to get through more milk as well!

As far as less landfill goes, the supermarkets were selling plastic bags of milk, not long ago and a jug that would last forever, to pour it in. But they seem to be no more? Already?

We still have our Tupperware Jug (do not use it these days though)

I think it went on to keep Orange Juice in for while.

But would you put money on it? ;0)

It wasn't as long ago as tupperware (which is probably still around but I don't bother with those parties now) The plastic bags of milk and jugs were in sainsbury's a few months ago. but I haven't seen them for a few weeks. Or tried them yet!

is that nobody has come up with a compact, efficient machine that could make milk for us all in our homes.

Surely it should be possible in the 21st century for cows to be superseded by technology? I want something that takes grass concentrate and water, plus a few secret ingredients, and turns them into fresh milk every morning.

Not yet another kitchen machine, to stand alongside the one that turns plankton into fish fingers, and corn into chicken nuggets!

I think maybe the FE is trying to steal my silly point position on the forum...

Did anyone notice that on the video he mentioned the 'traditional' milk package and picked up a moulded plastic bottle? To me the traditional milk container is glass and with a wide opening.

that vends money magically out of thin air.

This always amuses me. Just dig some more holes lads...........

The new milk bottle is a complicated design. I have seen the same principle, use a bio bag in a carton, no faffing around splitting the waste.
You could also use a starch based bottle, if they are stable with milk.

He may have just copied the Wine Box. Same idea different drink.
