While our anti-plastic straw campaign, The Last Straw for Wanstead, continues, there is definitely a mood around to reduce wasted plastic even more.
One trend spotted by the Guardian is a sudden growth in the number of households ordering their milk from a milkman. Maybe it’s the glass bottles, the electric engines, or the charming tradition. But whatever the reason, Parker Dairies – which serves Wanstead with at least two rounds, the celebrated Steve and his oppo, Dave (pictured) – is reporting literally hundreds of new customers since the New Year.
