London Milky Skyline

Office Milk Delivery in London

Milk deliveries used to be common place in London. The chinking of the glass bottles along with the cheery whistle from the milkman was a familiar sound to wake up to on a morning. For many years the mornings fell silent as consumers moved at scale to purchasing from the supermarkets seeing many milk businesses close. Over the last couple of years however traditional glass milk bottles have seen a significant rise in popularity driven by peoples’ desire to reduce single use plastic driven very much by campaigns such as ocean rescue. Businesses, as well as residential customers are now making informed decisions on what is the right solution for milk deliveries for particular circumstances. Whilst glass bottles certainly have environmental benefits over solutions which cut carbon footprints are also available such as the rise in the number of milk dispensers in high milk use areas that cut down the number of food miles and the amount of packaging drastically.

Are Glass Milk Bottles Back?

Reports from the dairy industry show a significant rise in the demand for glass bottles ( made from Silica (sand), soda ash, limestone, and cullet ) with some dairies reporting doubling of sales as a result. The Waste charity Wrap told the BBC  the environmental benefit is difficult to decipher. “For glass to be the better environmental option from a carbon perspective, our research shows that any bottle needs to be reused at least 20 times,”  read more. Taking other factors into account, such as the increased carbon footprint transporting glass, which is heavier than plastic makes making a decision on the best mode of milk packaging for the environment un-clear at best.
