Orange Juice in Glass

Prior to this plastic-free adventure, Dan would go through a 1/2 gallon of orange juice every week.  It was part of his morning routine to drink a glass with breakfast.  We usually bought it in a paperboard (plastic-coated) container.  When we decided to go plastic-free, we said farewell to the orange juice.  I bought apple juice in a glass jar, but Dan hardly touched it.  It just wasn’t the same.

On a trip to Wheat Ridge Poultry & Meats, I saw that along with Morning Fresh Dairy glass-bottled milk, there was glass-bottled orange juice for sale!  I was thrilled at my find and Dan was happy to have his orange juice again.  The bottle, just like the milk, does have a plastic cap.  Morning Fresh Dairy has a program called Caps 4 Cash, where schools can earn cash by collecting the plastic caps from the Morning Fresh Dairy glass bottles.  The school gets 5 cents for each cap redeemed.

Wheat Ridge Poultry & Meats is located at 5650 W 29th Ave, Wheat Ridge, Colorado 80214.  If you buy glass-bottled milk or juice, plan on paying a $1.50 deposit (to be refunded when you return your empty bottle).  Wheat Ridge does use plastic-lined paper to wrap their meats, so plan ahead and bring your own container for your meat purchases.
