Glass milk bottles have been around for many years, and although numbers began to dwindle back in the 90s and early 2000’s, there has been a growing trend towards the use of reusable glass bottles for milk, which has led to a resurgence in popularity for glass milk bottles across the country.
Many people appreciate the environmental benefits of using glass instead of plastic for milk packaging, as glass is easier to recycle and does not contribute to the growing problem of plastic waste.
At goodnus we’ve definitely seen a huge increase of businesses opting to use glass milk bottles, and currently we deliver over 1 million glass bottles to customers across London and Essex each year, as well as collecting the empties! This is something we’re extremely proud of.
Here’s some great examples of why businesses should definitely consider using glass milk bottles, instead of single-use plastic:
Environmentally friendly: Glass is recyclable and can be reused up to 40 times, reducing waste and environmental impact.
Preserves taste and quality: Glass is non-reactive and does not absorb odors or flavors, which helps to preserve the taste and quality of milk.
Better for local economies: Using glass milk bottles can support local dairy farms and milk delivery services, which in turn can help to strengthen local economies.
Aesthetically pleasing: When employees, partners or visitors come into your office, making them a coffee is usually the first thing you do – offering them milk from a glass bottle is a great conversation starter and instantly shows you care about the environment.
