At first we checked the date – we thought this must be an Aprils Fools joke! However we have it on good authority that the world’s first robot milk round has just been launched as drinks brand Plenish has announced that their range of dairy-free milks will be delivered by autonomous bots in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.
So, do tell us more…..!
“The sleek fleet of self-driving robots move at pedestrian speed – around four miles per hour – and can navigate obstacles, including stopping at roadsides and crossing when it is clear.”
The dairy free delivery bots weigh less than 100 pounds (45kg) and their cargo can be opened only by the delivery app, which tracks their journey to and from the customer.
“The revolutionary scheme will not only save customers a journey to the shops, but it’ll also help to save the planet.” Says Plenish….
“That’s because the delivery robots are powered by eco-friendly electric batteries, rather than fuel-guzzling engines.”
So nipping out for a pint of milk, as the saying goes, can be particularly damaging to the environment as modern cars produce twice as much carbon emissions in the first five minutes of a journey.
What’s more, milk production also takes a huge toll on the planet. Environmental scientist Joseph Poore, from the University of Oxford, has shown that Plenish’s plant-based milks have up to 70% fewer carbon emissions than dairy. Making the robot milk round a win-win for the environment.
Kara Rosen, founder of Plenish, said: “We are a future-conscious brand which is always looking to innovate. Through our new Enriched range, Plenish have created the milk of the future – so what better way to deliver it than through a robot milk round?
“Our brand ethos is all about healthy you, healthy planet – and this is the embodiment of that.”
Dietician Helen Bond said: “Numerous studies are backing up what Mother Nature has long known: that plant-based foods are powerful allies in the battle for a healthier you, and a healthier environment.
“More and more of us are making the switch to plant-based dairy alternatives.”
And on top of this the range of dairy free milks from Plenish is amazing – and they taste delicious. We love their ready to go ice lattes! And their vegan chocolate milk shakes are gorgeous. Their almond milk is great in a berry protein shake and we love their soya milk in tea!
We love Plenish! We are also organic fans here at VeggieVision TV and can not wait to try their juices! Go Plenish!!
