Find Me a Milkman
About a year ago now we were tipped-off about a website called Find Me a Milkman. Before we could even blog about the site or use it, there was a knock on the door and our local milkman was there drumming up business for the milk round. We signed up straight away and have been happy as hippies on a green planet since.
So why is having your milk delivered such a green option? Well, for starters, the milk-float is the classic green vehicle. Electric-powered and virtually silent, the milkman delivers your daily pint with very little in the way of emissions.
Secondly, every milk bottle goes back to the depot and is thoroughly sterilised before being re-used and re-filled. A milk bottle can be re-used between 12 and 40 times, better than tetrapak landfill cartons and HDPE re-cyclable plastic bottles. Now that's green.
