Green Milk Bottles

Our milk arrives on the doorstep, in glass bottles, which are whisked away when empty and re-used or recycled, depending on their condition.

I think I am right in saying that most milk nowadays is packaged in plastic bottles and sold from supermarkets and shops. The plastic is made from crude oil and can be recycled, but takes about 500 years to rot if it ends up in a landfill site.

Now there is an alternative option to the plastic bottle. Based in Framlingham, Martin Meyerscough at Greenbottle Ltd, has designed a milk bottle, made from moulded recycled cardboard, with a biodegradable insert. The whole lot can be recycled when empty.

It's causing a bit of a stir. Brilliant!

Keep in Touch

I try to keep in touch with the companies that support the school's recycling scheme, and am in the process of sending a newsletter to them, so it was good to receive a response from a local company that has supported our cartridge recycling for a very long time!
"Could you mention us and add a link on your website please" was the request from Access Accounting. My daughter, who designed the site, will have to do this, as I can't alter the website. However, I can manage this Blog and I will be very happy to add your company to the list of Supportive Companies in the links section. You just have to ask!!!!.
