Please, start delivering non-dairy milk alternatives in returnable glass bottles!

An increasing number of people is turning to non-dairy milk alternatives: for health reasons, environmental concerns, ethical or lifestyle choices.
Unfortunately, commercially available brands are all packaged in plastic or Tetra Pack containers. These containers are difficult and expensive to recycle: plastic is usually downcycled rather than recycled (which means it is turned into lower quality products not suitable to be in contact with food); Tetra Pack recycling is complex because of the multiple layers and the internal plastic film is not recyclable.
This makes non-dairy milk alternatives less appealing to customers who care about the amount of waste and plastic they produce and about their carbon footprint. The fact that these beverages are packaged in direct contact with plastic also raises concerns about the risk of hazardous chemicals leaching from the containers. The only alternative so far is self-production, which is time-consuming and cumbersome.
The solution? Please, introduce the delivery of non-dairy milk alternatives, door-to-door, just as it has been done with orange juice!
Reusing glass bottles has a lower carbon footprint than using plastic (about 60% less); it reduces waste production; it improves the safety and the taste of the product. It is better for us and better for the environment!
