Eureka!! I Have Milk!!

The milk in the fridge.

As I mentioned before, I’ve been looking for milk in a reusable container. I honestly thought that I wouldn’t be able to find it since I was told that it didn’t exist anymore.

But we found it! There’s a small grocery store/café on Victoria Avenue in Westmount called Marché Vic that sells milk in glass bottles, and the employee who explained everything about the milk was super nice as well. There’s a $2 deposit on the bottle so it’s a bit expensive the first time you buy milk, but after that just bring back your old, empty, bottle each time and you only pay the price of the milk. The bottles are sent back to the dairy where they’re sterilized and refilled with new milk. The only garbage is the plastic cap, but I’ve been keeping them to try to do an art project with the children that I look after. They’ll become little magnetic frames or something like that.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m really happy to have found milk, but I think that the milk tastes even better than the milk that I’ve had from cartons or plastic bottles. I’ll have to try the chocolate milk too!!

Note from John: The milk is from Harmony Organic, based near Toronto. They sell the normal range of milks & creams in glass bottles, but so far we’ve only tried the 2%.
