GE Caulk available in single-use packetsGE Caulk Singles, single-use disposable packages of caulk, are intended to replace sometimes difficult-to-use squeeze tubes and caulk guns. Caulk Singles use geometric bellows and other hidden mechanisms to dispense with one hand and eliminate waste by evenly dispensing the caulk from the back to the front of the package. The packaging also helps the user to create an even, neat bead of caulk despite changes in pressure, minimizing the clean-up and dry time.

UK milk comes in plastic bagsBritish food retailer Sainsbury’s recently rolled out milk in flexible plastic bags, meant to be used with a specially designed pitcher. Consumers place the two-pint bag into the pitcher, trade-named Jugit. The Jugit has a spike that pierces the bag, forming a leakproof seal and allowing the milk to be poured through the spout. The spike attachment is the only part of Jugit that needs to be cleaned between uses, making the system more convenient for consumers. Jugit is sold with two spike attachments so that consumers can switch bags without having to wash the attachment right away. Sainsbury’s estimates that bags will cut packaging waste by up to 75%. Jugit was developed by Dairy Crest, the supplier that provides the milk, and is produced by RPC Containers.
