I had no idea either! At home and garden and on our sister site, Craftbits.com, we use milk crates for a variety of projects.
However, if you go by this article in the ModernFarmer, use of milk crates for anything other than carrying milk is illegal and can invite fines up to $300! Or jail time for 90 days.
Add to the fact that milk crates are so good as rubbish bins, temporary seats and convenient step ladders and you can see why they are so sought after.
What are your thoughts on this? Have you used milk crates in your DIY projects? Did you know that it was illegal?
