A zero-waste oat milk delivery service is coming to Bristol bringing back the nostalgia of having milk in glass bottles delivered to your door.
We Brits love a nice cuppa, so much so in fact that it’s estimated that we drink 165 million cups of tea a day! Vegans are particularly partial to using oat milk in place of cows milk, but as these come packaged in Tetra Pak cartons that means a lot of waste is being created.
In a bid to make the streets of Bristol even greener, dynamic-duo Elspeth and Joe have come up with an innovative solution and are launching the first zero-waste oat milk delivery service in Bristol.
The idea for New Milk came to be after chef Elspeth and her partner Joe realised after a manic weekend serving up coffee at an event that they had thrown away over 100 Tetra Paks of Oatly Barista milk. For two people who pride themselves on being environmentally conscious, they felt guilty.
Instead of ignoring the problem, the entrepreneurial pair started blending, crunching, experimenting and squeezing to create a non-dairy oat milk that tasted delicious and was vegan, gluten-free and pesticide-free.
The New Milk team will be delivering their homemade oat milk in reusable glass bottles via bike to bring back the nostalgia of having milk in glass bottles delivered to your doorstep whilst minimising pollution at the same time.
New Milk will be stocking independent cafes first from July 17, followed by supplying individuals through their bike delivery service.
