No more milk top rage


Universal design doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive.

Since their introduction, trying to pry the top from a milk carton has been challenge in dexterity and finger strength. I dare to think how much milk, and probably blood, has been spilt as older people give up and start hacking at the top with a knife.

Add a simple tag and all is solved. Why has it taken so long to happen? Probably because the designers of the pack were young, didn’t eat cornflakes and liked their tea black. Dick Stroud
