Milkmen have always been a classic staple of English towns – and now, thanks to a BBC documentary about the planet, more and more London residents are returning to their roots and turning their business over to milkmen.
UK-based dairy delivery company Milk & More has seen a surge in business since the release of Blue Planet II, a David Attenborough-narrated series of nature documentaries.
The show, which has already inspired a host of other environmentally-friendly initiatives, gives an in-depth look on the dangers of plastic pollution and why people need to use less wasteful forms of packaging.
According to the BBC, Milk & More has had 2,500 new customers since the release of Blue Planet II. The company’s website visits have also doubled.
Additionally, glass bottles were only requested by customers about 50% of the time. After the documentary’s release, over 90% of customers have requested glass milk bottles instead of plastic.
