Following a successful trial, Waitrose announced today it is to sell milk by the bag in dozens of its stores.

Customers can also buy a £1.99 reusable jug to pour the milk into.

The environmentally friendly plastic sacs, called Eco Paks, were tested last year. The response was positive and Waitrose now plans to promote the milk bags in more than 50 stores around the country, including several in London.

The bags use 75 per cent less plastic than bottles. Milk in an Eco Pak costs 99p per litre, compared with about 86p per litre for milk in a plastic bottle. The milk is sourced from organic farming group Calon Wen.
