Animal agriculture is one of the leading drivers of climate change, producing more greenhouse gases than all of the world's transport combined. Switching from dairy to plant-based milk is one of the ways we can significantly reduce our impact on the planet.
The dairy industry separates calves from their mothers
Dairy cows undergo forced insemination, repeated pregnancies and constant milking, which puts incredible strain on their bodies. This results in illness, infections and an early death at four or five when they would naturally live into their 20s.
Even worse, their babies taken away, often within hours of birth, so the milk can be sold for human consumption. Male calves are either shot soon after birth, or reared on milk substitutes to be killed for veal or beef.
Choosing plant based milks means you help end the suffering of millions of cows and their calves each year.
Research is increasingly showing that a whole food, plant-based diet, including plant milks, is beneficial to our health and helps to prevent and even reverse disease. This debunks the myth that humans need cows' milk to be healthy. In fact, cows' milk is linked to a host of health conditions and does not offer any nutrients that cannot be found in a healthier form in other foods
PSA: Cows are DEFINITELY killed for milk. #doyourresearch #worldplantmilkday
