Switching to Glass Milk Bottles from Plastic
In the Sylvagen office we made the switch to glass milk bottles from plastic milk bottles in an effort to limit our plastic pollution.
The big advantage of switching to glass milk bottles instead of plastic or carton containers is the fact that the bottles can be reused almost instantaneously and doesn’t end up in the ocean harming marine life.
The milk is organic, locally sourced in Kent and our milkman collects the empty bottles who are then returned to the dairy where they are sterilised in hot water, refilled, recapped and made ready for delivery again!
Furthermore, glass does not contain any of the potentially harmful chemicals many single-use plastic bottles still do, like bisphenol A (BPA), which is believed to be responsible for disruption of natural hormones in the body.
