‘The response shows just how close the issue is to people’s hearts. It’s also great to be supporting a local farm’
A local Co-op store in Sheffield is bringing back the glass milk bottle, in response to demand from customers and the war on plastic.
The store, on Ecclesall Road, is selling glass pint bottles from local farm Our Cow Molly, four miles away. Customers can return the bottles to the shop to be re-used by the dairy.
According to store manager Pete Cooper, the glass bottles are proving a hit and he’s planning on increasing his order to meet demand.
