I agree with Doug that the energy savings are an important factor in this
packaging type.



But another problem with the suggestion from "Jdresser" is that there is
nothing "simple" about getting a product "ban" in place. I don't know which
country this person lives in, but in the Western States of America even
suggesting a product ban will get you labeled as un-American!

The only problem with a ban is that aseptic contains provide a low-weight,
low breakage way to ship and store food products such as milk and juice
without refrigeration for fairly long periods of time. This is quite
important in many parts of the world.

I would think a simpler solution, rather than going to all this trouble for
an end of pipe solution, would be to simply 'ban' this type of container
from the marketplace.
