"I have always used a milkman and tried to encourage others to do so. My argument being that glass bottles are more sustainable than plastic ones, as they can be reused endlessly. Milkmen also provide a vital service to house-bound people and deliver a wide range of goods as well as milk - I get fruit juice too. Milk is cheaper at the supermarket but the extra cost is worth the benefit to the planet. http://www.findmeamilkman.net/
Having milk delivered to my door in glass bottles is very satisfying, especially as it reduces my use of plastic. I shall definitely continue to use the milkman!
Milk & More has lots of other food, drink and household items which could be helpful for people with restricted access to shops.
