The Media Buzz About Milk in Glass Bottles - Its a Growing Moovement
The Glass Bottle Returns
July 1, 2018
Glass milk bottles are making a comeback as the backlash against plastic waste pollution gathers pace among consumers. The nostalgic clink-clink of the bottles is making a return with milk producers reporting a progressive increase in demand for milk in traditional glass bottles.
Bottles, once a common sight on doorsteps up and down the UK, have been in dramatic decline ever since the home delivery market started to turn sour in the 70’s and had all but vanished, along with the milkman. But a recent BBC survey of 20 UK dairies reported that 17 had seen a surge in the demand for glass bottled milk.
Arguably, some experts say the composition of glass bottles helps maintain the quality of the milk and keeps your milk fresher for longer. Not only does a freshly delivered glass bottle of milk make your mornings that little bit extra special, glass is also better for your health, is endlessly recyclable and therefore better for the environment too.

Did You Know?

The earliest mention of a “milk bottle” in the Oxford Dictionary dates back to 1831.
The earliest patent for glass milk bottle with a small glass lid and a tin clip was in the USA in 1880.
The European Patent Office lists about 1,700 patents worldwide with “milk bottle” in their title.
Before milk bottles arrived, milkmen used to fill customers’ own jugs with milk.
In 1975, 94 per cent of UK milk was put into glass bottles. By 2012, this was down to 4 per cent.
A single pint glass bottle weighs 15 times more than its plastic equivalent.
The average glass milk bottle will last at least 15 recyling trips.
The Milkman Cometh...Again!
July 1, 2018
Although cheap supermarket milk has seen the near demise of the daily milk delivery service, it has managed to survive in many areas of the UK and right now, home milk delivery is making a slow but steady comeback. We are undergoing what could be called a “a milkman renaissance.”
It’s easy to understand how home milk delivery went into decline. So why are doorstep deliveries making a comeback now? Its certainly more than nostalgia, it’s a combination of;
The quest for fair milk prices for the dairy farmer.
Wanting the freshest and best quality milk available.
The convenience of ordering online or by phone.
A desire to trade with a local milk retailer – keeping your money in the local community and economy.
Knowing that every order is being handled with a personal touch.
And a reassuring comfort that your local milkman is keeping an eye out for your house and the community while he is on his rounds in the early hours of the morning.
