If that's the case, the lid wouldn't work for our dairy out here because their bottles look like this.

while are visiting brookford farm's site, read a little about them, they are fascinating (they are very much like the greenhorn people). i actually got to witness some huge drama surrounding them and farm relocation this past weekend. luckily they won, but the twist of the story is that stonyfield's ceo had to front them the cash, out of his personal money, not stonyfield's money. so now my local, awesome, independent farm, is 3 degrees of separation from dannon yogurt. but the connections are very weak, and there is no chance for influence unless situations get very dire.

Please let me know the brand of the milk, and I can call the dairy and ask about the lid.

julsie on Milk in glass http://myplasticfreelife.com/forum/plastic-free-alternatives/milk-in-glass/#p596 Plastic-free Alternatives http://myplasticfreelife.com/forum/plastic-free-alternatives/milk-in-glass/#p596 Is there fine print on the caps themselves?  That's how they're labeled around here.  Labeling the bottles would make it more difficult to re-use them, since you'd have to either clean off sticky labels or sort the skim milk containers from the whole milk containers.  I'd ask a store employee if you can't crack the code, but generally red is whole milk, blue is 2%, green is skim, yellow is buttermilk.  Our east coast brand is Trickling Springs.

I have no idea. Here's the company's web site, and I can't even tell from that. I guess you'll have to contact them.

lisa on Milk in glass http://myplasticfreelife.com/forum/plastic-free-alternatives/milk-in-glass/#p594 Plastic-free Alternatives http://myplasticfreelife.com/forum/plastic-free-alternatives/milk-in-glass/#p594 So I have been buying milk in glass jars to avoid the plastic containers.  However there is no labelling except the cap colors.  I usually buy the blue capped bottles.  However recently a red and green capped have appeared on the shelves.  I have no idea what those two are... I think the red cap is whole milk but the green capped milk seems to be more yellow in color.  The company is Ronnybrook dairy, the milk that is commonly sold at whole foods.  Any ideas on what they are?

Lisa
