Our milkman (yes we still have one) has recently started to leave us bags of milk instead of the traditional bottles. Yes, that’s right – milk, in bags.
He also left us a jug the other day in which we can put said bags of milk in so we can use them.
The idea is that in putting them in bags it saves on packaging and thus is more eco friendly. Fair enough, but I already thought that the milkman collecting the used glass bottles so they could be taken back and reused was being good to the environment. I suppose any new idea to save money and resources is to be welcomed in this day and age. However, it’s still a bit weird to see milk in a packet rather than a bottle.
