This Brand Is Bringing Back The "Milkman" Method To Eliminate Plastic Waste

It’s no secret; brands everywhere are trying to go green and manage their environmental impacts. While new compostable or recyclable packaging is a step in the right direction, there is still waste being created somewhere down the line. But companies like Plaine Products have stepped up to change the way we think about our household products by bringing back an old system: the milkman.
In the 1900s, milkmen would deliver glass bottles of milk to their customers doorsteps. When they were finished with said milk, they would leave the empty bottles out in a crate for the milkman to pick up, clean, and reuse. No disposables or plastics were involved and this system kept customers happy for a long time. But, as consumerism increased and milk preservation techniques improved, this system fell away. Or did it?
Plaine Products is “innovating” through the revitalization of the milkman system. They have created a system where customers can order household items that can be refilled and reused, drastically cutting down on waste.
So how does it work? Yes, it IS in fact, as easy as you think. All you have to do is hop over to their site (or click here), create a bundle of products (you can get shampoo, body wash, hand soap, etc.), and boom it arrives to your doorstep in refillable containers. You get a set of pumps to use and reuse as well. And when you’re running low, just order a refill bottle or set up a subscription so you get fills automatically.
This is a GREAT system for anyone who wants to be more zero waste, can’t get down with bar products, or is looking for a way to simplify their shopping. Shop them here!
