"Home milk deliveries from local dairies and creameries used to be a part of the daily routine for many families up to the 1950s and ’60s. However as it became easier and cheaper to purchase milk from the store, the milkman began to disappear.
However as many Millenials shift to more sustainable ways of living, avoiding unnecessary plastic and waste, the milkmen and women of London UK- are making a come back.It turns out that many will pay a little more for a service, if it’s better bid to help the environment.
Milk&More and Parker Dairies of London UK have both seen a dramatic increase in their demand for glass bottles since 2018. Claiming that David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II is the catalyst for the uptake.With close to a 25 percent increase in two-years – figures estimate that doorstep deliveries make up 3 percent of all milk sales in the UK. Which is around 1 million pints per day.
Depot manager, Paul Lough of Parker Dairies thinks this interest in glass bottles is “absolutely phenomenal”. In less than a year, he gained 382 new customers, and of these new calls – 95 percent are getting glass bottles.
Paul says: “People are much more environmentally conscious and so they are asking if we do glass,”. Since glass milk bottles can be reused up to 25 times before they are recycled into new bottles, it’s a favorable way to decrease waste. Plus, everything just tastes better when it comes from a cold glass bottle."
