I saw something rare today..

I've not seen it since the late 80s.
It was once common place and a disposable item.
It was then replaced by something else.
Can you guess what it is?  Smiley

He said rare, not made up!
My final guess (unless I get bored and come back to the thread) is a glass bottle of milk in a shop.
