www.choosecartons.com and I totally changed my mind. For example, did you know that cartons block UV light preserving the nutritional value of foods like milk? Did you also know that paperboard cartons contain over 70% paper, which comes from a renewable resource, trees from responsibly managed forests?
Evergreen offers a lot of interesting facts about cartons I didn't know before. After learning about how much better it is to use carton instead of plastic (even if we do recycle the plastic), I am definitely planning buying items that are packaged in cartons! I checked out our local supermarkets and realized that many of the things I bought regularly do come in cartons. Instead of buying 1 gallon of milk that comes in plastic, I could buy 2 of the half gallon milk that come in cartons. Making the transition to food packaged in cartoon wasn't that hard for me, I just needed to check out a few stores and note what my options were.
