When Milk and Juice meet, it is love at first sight, and they spend many happy days in the refrigerator together. However, when Juice is taken away to be recycled, their love faces an obstacle, but will not be destroyed. Through their many new forms and constant recycling, Milk and Juice are determined to be reunited, and will not stop searching for one another.

This humorous picturebook will make readers root for the unlikely couple despite the fact that they are plastic containers. Brown’s simple illustrations convey the love and despair that come with true love while also teaching readers about all the different items that can be made from recycled plastic.
