Reducing waste and helping the community

In the UK people are throwing away £13bn of food each year, latest figures show. With this in mind we are keen to do their part by reducing waste ensuring 90% of fruit is not just thrown away but donated to food banks and charity organisations, for those in need of a little help.

AdBlue which is fed into the exhaust of all our vans, reacting with the nitrogen oxide gas produced by the combustion process, breaking it down into harmless nitrogen and oxygen. We are aware that emission levels in cities throughout the UK are at dangerous levels in certain areas. We are doing everything possible to keep green and lower C02 emissions.

Plastic Pollution

Plastic bottle waste in the UK

“In the UK, 5.5 billion plastic bottles escape household recycling collection every year. Of these bottles, 55% (approximately 3 billion) are incinerated and 45% (approximately 2.5 billion) are landfilled every year” – Moopops

The number of times in which a glass milk bottle can be reused is between 25-50 times compared to the plastic bottle’s once, most of which will end up in landfill. Therefore, that makes reusable milk bottles a more energy-efficient choice than disposable plastic. When a milk bottle becomes too scuffed or damaged to reuse, it goes to the recycling. The glass milk bottles have around 35% recycled glass in it and so consumers are finding this an eco-friendly and convenient way to make 1 simple change to reduce their plastic consumption.

With many documentaries highlighting the negative impact single use plastics has on our environment. Consumers are becoming more aware of how they use and purchase single use plastics. Making small changes really has a huge impact on reducing the amount of plastics that end up in landfill. Having your milk delivered in glass bottles is a small change and can be easily made.
