Not for the lactose intolerant but fortunately these glass milk bottle lights are empty. Someone who could tolerate lactose drank all the milk and refilled them with electric wired light bulbs. It just goes to show you what a little imagination can do and create. I actually remember having milk bottles delivered to our home when I was growing up. We had a little metal box by the front door and twice a week it would be filled with milk delivered by the milkman. Supermarkets put the milkman out of business but today we see a resurgence in home food delivery. Now there are companies that will deliver the milk and more to your door. Seems like a new idea but most things always come back in style at what time or another. I really like these glass milk bottle lights but here are a few small facts about milk.
Glass Milk Bottle Lights
Throughout the world, there are more than six billion consumers of milk and milk products. In 2011, dairy farms produced 730 million tons of milk from 260 million cows. India is the world’s largest producer of milk and the leading exporter of skimmed milk powder. The United States, India, China and Brazil are the world’s largest exporters of milk and milk products. Until 2016, China and Russia were the world’s largest importers of milk. But both countries have become self sufficient which has contributed to a worldwide surplus of milk. It sure doesn’t show in the prices at the supermarket.
