Morrisons shoppers ‘delighted’ with milk packaging change – ‘It’s the way to go’
As part of the supermarket giant plans to reduce the use of plastic and carbon dioxide emissions, reintroducing glass milk bottles is just one way Morrisons is helping to reduce their footprint. The retailer has said that the change is expected to remove 40,000 plastic bottles from stores per year.
One customer wrote: “Got to say, Morrisons just keeps getting better. First paper bags for veg, now glass bottles for milk.”
Another said: “I was delighted to see Morrisons bringing back milk glass bottles, it should be mainstream.”
“It’s the way to go, other supermarkets should follow in their footsteps,” a third tweeted.
Another customer explained: “I can’t wait to be able to pick these up, turning back the clock.”
The glass milk bottles are already in seven stores across the Kent region and four in Sheffield.
Steve Hynd, Policy Manager from environment organisation City to Seam said: “Milk is a prime example of a product that could and should be swapped from single-use plastic bottles to planet friendly reusable bottles.
“It is great to see Morrisons pioneering the process of delivering milk in reusable bottles in supermarket stores.
“We know this move is popular, with three out of four people telling us they want more refill options in shops as a way of tacking plastic pollution.
“This is Morrisons doing not only what is right for the planet but also what their customers are telling us they want to see.”
