  • Milk deliveries?

    Hello, as I am trying to reduce plastic use I'm looking for a milk (wo)man to deliver milk/juice in old fashioned glass bottles. Does anyone know if there any that deliver around Elm Park area? Failing that, do any of the supermarket sell milk in glass bottles instead? It would really help me, we use a lot of milk (tea addicts) and would save us loads of unnecessary plastic.
