Glass milk bottles

We’ve always tried to run Seasalt so that it has a positive impact on the world around us, and we run our shops and design studio mindful of our impact on the environment.

So one step towards reducing plastic waste at Seasalt design studios was to swap plastic milk bottles for old school glass bottles. With more and more people determined to cut down the amount of plastic they use, the milk round is seeing a resurgence.

Thanks to Lillie Brothers, a family-run business based just down the road from us in Falmouth, we now have fresh milk delivered to our doorstep in glass bottles that can be rinsed and returned to the dairy to be used again and again. And as well as helping us cut down the amount of plastic we use, we’re actually saving money by having our milk delivered in glass bottles!

As many of us hadn’t seen glass milk bottles since our childhood, our new milk deliveries have caused a bit of a stir here this week. Using glass milk bottles at work has inspired several members of staff to try and get milk delivered at home, too.
