Organic and Recyclable Milk Alternatives?

I was just curious if anyone knew of a Soy/Almond/Rice drink that is marketed as a milk alternative that is USDA organic and comes in a recyclable package?

Most of the soy and rice drinks I've been buying over the past year have come in Tetrapaks or some other form of aseptic cartons, which are not readily recyclable. I'm getting tired of just throwing them out, would like to purchase one that comes in a recyclable container that is as simple to recycle as my bottles and cans.

I've only found one company, Vermont Soy, but they are not sold in my area. So if anyone knows of a larger company that can fit this bill let me know or fill me in on what you are doing for breakfasts and snacks. I really enjoy cereal and can't really munch on it without a "milk" unless it's a really sugary kid cereal (which I am trying to avoid more than dairy).

So yeah, suggestions?

Went to my local grocery store this evening, rather than Costco, to see what they had to offer. In the milk aisle they had Silk and 8th Continent. Interestingly enough is USDA organic but comes in an aseptic carton, while 8th Continent (new brand to me) came in an HDPE Type 2 compliant "recyclable" plastic container.

So I guess the real question is what constitutes organic and why do I want/need it? This 8th Continent is the first soy brand I have seen that doesn't advertise being organic or kosher.

Yeah I am in the Temecula area, not sure what you mean by co-op market?
Trader Joe's/Henry's type of place or a local only farmer's market?

ah I knew you were close, but probably not lots of options up there.

I drive to Temecula every weekend, watch for the blue yaris 4dr coasting down the hill from the check point at 80mph!

Ok back on topic
