Should Glass Milk Bottles Make a Comeback to the Supermarket Shelves?

It’s a no brainer that glass and milk go hand in hand. Not only does glass help keep milk fresher for longer, but it also ensures that it retains all its taste and goodness. Those who read our exclusive interview with the world’s first milk sommelier, Bas de Groot, will know that if you want to taste milk like a sommelier, you definitely need to use glass to keep the taste intact. Even dairy farms agree that glass is the best option for storing milk:

Recycle Glass From All Around Your Home

Most of us know we can recycle bottles and jars either at bottle banks or through our council’s kerbside collection. But how many of us are recycling all the items we can?

With frost thick on the ground and snow in London (who would of thought?!), the idea of spring cleaning will have most people cowering under the duvet! However, once the days get longer and lighter and daffodils start to bud, there’s nothing better than sprucing up the home ready to welcome the year ahead.

Healthy lunch on the go, in glass jars!


It’s January and for many of us this month heralds the inevitable backlash against the indulgence of food and drink during the Christmas period. While there’s no shortage of advice on getting fit and healthy: gyms, the latest diets and the new super-foods, the expense, time and effort these things take can be overwhelming.
