Join The Fight Against Plastic
Current media and television coverage such as David Attenborough on oceanic plastic pollution has brought this issue to the forefront of public awareness and has made plastic waste public enemy number one. There is more than 300 million tones of plastic produced annually and 90% of all plastic is not recycled.
The UK uses a staggering 13 billion plastic bottles every year. Drinks bottles, milk bottles and toiletries bottles make up over 60% of household plastic packaging. Plastic bottle waste finds its way from the land into our rivers and seas, it then degrades into micro-plastics, that are easily consumed by sea life and fish. Plastic waste has been found in more than 90% of the world's sea birds, in the stomachs of more than 50% of the world's sea turtles.
Worryingly, if the existing trend of marine plastic pollution levels continue, the tonnage of plastic in the sea will unfortunately outweigh fish by 2050. So when it comes to milk and dairy products glass in an obvious alternative to plastic packaging. Plastic not only harms, the environment, the planet, the wildlife, it also harms human health.
Benefits of glass bottles
Why milkmen are on the rise again…
Glass Milk bottles can be reused up to 50 times with a minimum expectancy of 25 times. Glass is the eco- friendly alternative to single use plastic containers.
Another benefit of glass bottles is that once they reach the end of their life cycle with us they are 100% recyclable, glass in the only product on the market that has an endless recycling life.
As glass is produced from natural materials it is the only packaging material that has been selected as fully safe by the FDA.
Glass bottles have also been proven to preserve the flavour of dairy products for much longer in comparison to other packaging materials.
Added benefit is even if you don’t have time to go to the shop or forget to go, when you wake up in the morning there will be fresh milk sitting on your doorstep.
