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.
