We love when food and beverage brands take a leap into a plant-based future while still valuing tradition, and this awesome nut milk brand is doing just that.

A London-based nut milk company called Mylkman has a charming twist on the classic age-old milk delivery service commonplace in yesteryear. In alignment with the old custom, “mylkmen” deliver bottles of milk directly to customers’ doors.

But there are several ways in which the company differs from milk delivery services of the past. All the products delivered are plant-based, with simple, whole ingredients like almonds, Medjool dates, coconut, pistachio, turmeric, and pink Himalayan sea salt. Mylks are made-to-order and can be made sugar-free by request. Additionally, the company ditches plastic and uses recyclable/reusable glass bottles, and they even offer customers a discount for returning the bottles. To make things even more environmentally-conscious, Mylkman delivers their mylks by bicycles instead of cars! Oh and if things couldn’t seem any better, ten percent of all profits go to Greenpeace, which makes us love the brand even more!

The demand for plant-based mylks is booming at record rates, pushing dairy further into the past and making companies like Mylkman really shine out from the crowd. Considering the monumental impact that the dairy industry has on animals and the environment, it is so great to see people opting for a more sustainable choice. This service is currently only available in the UK, but we’re hoping that news of this revolutionary concept sparks some similar businesses here in the U.S. To learn more about Mylkman, visit their website here.

We still had drive-thru dairies in our neighborhood when I was growing up. I loved going to the dairy with my grandmother. She got her milk in glass half-gallon bottles, and my siblings and I would compete to be the one who got to enjoy the cream that would accumulate on the paper cap that sealed the bottles. Grandma would almost always pick up a carton of Eskimo Pies or some other kind of ice cream while at the dairy. I think I remember finding an old carrier from the dairy with some old, empty milk bottles in them after my grandmother passed away in the late \'80\'s. The last of her milk bottles never did get returned to the dairy when the dairy shut down at last.

This service in the UK sounds great, but I would imagine it being so expensive, few people would be able to afford it. Made to order, plant-based milk formulas, and delivery service? It must be a bargain at 8-9 dollars a quart/liter.

Ah yes, I remember the milkman coming and leaving milk when I was a child. Now it would be the kind of milk in this article. What a great idea-no cruelty mixed with a bit of nostalgia and convenience.
