The M*lk Round

Think milk trucks are a thing of the past? Think again

M*lkman, known for making delicious nut mylks, has teamed up with family-run MOTHER Café in Hackney Wick, to start an alternative vegan delivery service, using a 69-year-old electric float. We spoke to some of the team – Charlie and Patrick from MOTHER (, and Jamie the M*lkman ( – to find out more about their exciting new venture.

What are you up to?

Charlie: We’re a collective of east London small producers, getting together to offer an ethically-driven and environmentally-friendly delivery service, focused on companies who make fresh vegan products that have a short shelf-life. If we want our products to be featured in supermarkets, it usually means that we have to compromise on what goes into them, as they want to overstock with longer-lasting food and drink. So, rather than do that, we want to reach our customer base in local areas. We called together a great group of independent businesses, and we use the electric powered M*lk float to get their products out to people, and that’s the main idea behind it – to get the best products out to people who want them.

About Be Kind

Hello, A warm welcome to our very first issue. I wonder what led you to pick up our magazine from the stand? Perhaps the striking image caught your eye? Or, maybe the title, Be Kind, struck a chord? Either way, we hope you’re here because you, too, want to make the world a better place. It’s a scary and uncertain time, as we watch our seas fill with plastic, our bins bulge and our air become dense with fumes and pollution. Each month, these pages will be packed with positive, proactive solutions to help you make small, achievable changes that will have a much bigger global impact. This month we’re focusing in on the huge problem of plastic. As one of the biggest, most talked about environmental issues of the last year, plastic has affected every corner of the earth and all aspects of the environment. From ditching straws and water bottles, to who to follow on Instagram for zero-waste inspiration, we’ve rounded up some motivating ideas to help you reduce your own footprint. We all need to learn to tread a little more lightly, and it’s these small steps that will spark and inspire greater progress. Showing a little kindness is what the world needs right now. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Editor
