Our administration was spreading awareness about the harmful effects of one-time disposable plastic items when people questioned the use of milk pouches. After some research, we decided to install milk ATMs to reduce plastic pouch waste generation, Kulange tells The Better India (TBI).

This great initiative has set up machines to sell fortified milk in the containers of the customers. In this way, people can bring containers from their home and get it filled from the milk vending machine.

The machine at Berhampur has a capacity of 500 litres. One litre of milk is sold at Rs 40. The minimum amount of milk that can be taken is 250ml for Rs 10. The ATM tied up with 7,200 dairy farmers through the milk co-operative supply milk.

The Rs 6 lakh milk ATM, financed by Tata group through their CSR funds, was started a little over a month ago near Gate Bazar in Berhampur, Odisha.
