Milkmen Are Returning As Millennials Bid To Reduce Plastic Waste

Until 50 or 60 years ago, home milk deliveries from local dairies and creameries were a part of the daily routine for lots of families.


Nevertheless, people began buying milk from the store as it was easier and cheaper, so the milkman started disappearing. People have recently become aware of the importance of a sustainable way of living, so the milkmen and women of London are now making a come back.


Pro-glass company My Own Bottle explained that glass is better for the planet, as it’s made from all-natural, sustainable raw materials, is a hundred percent recyclable and can be reused endlessly.


On the other hand, plastic bottles aren’t biodegradable, so that they can stick around for millennia.


So a growing number of young people try to satisfy their nostalgia for simpler times and go plastic-free, so the dairies in London claim there’s been a surge in interest as more youngsters become concerned with excess waste.


They believe it is after seeing all the harmful plastic in the ocean, and the catalyst for the sudden interest is believed to be David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II.


Since 2018, Milk&More and Parker Dairies of London UK have both seen a dramatic increase in their demand for glass bottles.


In only a few years, the increase has been up to 25 percent, and it’s estimated that doorstep deliveries make up 3% of all milk sales in the UK, which is about 1 million pints daily.


As depot manager, Paul Lough of Parker Dairies reported, this interest in glass bottles is “absolutely phenomenal.” Reportedly, in less than a year, he gained 382 new customers, and 95% of them demand glass bottles. He said that young people are much more environmentally conscious.


Glass milk bottles successfully reduce waste, as they can be reused up to 25 times before being recycled.


Furthermore, everything just tastes better when it comes from a cold glass bottle.


The glass bottle dairy has attracted a younger crowd. Payl knows it, and he works alongside the demographic, and their product list also includes things like sourdough bread and local honey.


Patrick Müller, the managing director of Milk&More, said they believe that the glass bottles are the future, and they aren’t just a thing from the past.


According to Patrick, those new customers are aged around 35 years old, many of them with young families with a double income. He says they care about the local community, and after he talked to them, they stated that they enjoy the experience of the glass bottle, which brings their childhood memories.


Also, they reduce plastic wastage.
