The dairy industry is a cause of immeasurable stress to cows. Due to the enormous volume of milk production, dairy cows, who are intelligent, empathetic, and affectionate animals, must endure uncomfortable and stressful conditions that do not meet even their most basic needs. Switching to plant-based milk means that this unnecessary suffering is reduced.
Animal agriculture is one of the leading drivers of climate change, producing more greenhouse gases than all of the world's transportation combined. Switching from dairy to plant-based milk is one of the ways in which you can significantly reduce your impact on the planet.
Research consistently shows that a wholefood, plant-based diet – including plant milk – is good for you. Such a diet can help prevent hypertension, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and some kinds of cancer. You don’t need dairy milk to be healthy.
The rise of plant-based milk around the world means that consumers are no longer limited to soya milk but can now choose from a wide selection of plant-based milks, from almond to oat, hemp, cashew, and many other nuts and grains.
The land used for growing crops to feed to animals in order to produce dairy milk is far larger than the land used to grow the crops used for plant-based milks. Reduced land use means that there is more land available to grow crops for people rather than farmed animals.
