Shoppers will soon be able to buy milk in plastic bags as part of a green initiative of Waitrose.


The supermarket chain Waitrose is
abolishing plastic milk bottles to reduce landfill and save the
energy used in their manufacture .

The new bags are made from
biodegradable plastic and can be recycled. Britons consume about 180
million pints of milk a week, of which at least two thirds is sold in
plastic bottles. Waitrose is to promote the milk bags in more than 50
stores around Britain.
