Replace at least half of your cow’s milk with a plant-based one this month. In the UK, because our dairy milk actually has below world-average emissions we think oat milk is the best alternative and find it really tasty on cereal and for cooking. It is a little bit more expensive than dairy but look out for offers and consider the few extra pennies as a donation to help save the planet! Not suitable as a main drink for children under 3.
Cows emit a massive amount of methane and their diet sometimes needs to be supplemented with cereals and proteins, such as soy, which all have their own environmental impact. If we can reduce the number of cattle we raise for food, we can drastically reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
See our Facts & Figures page for more information on plant-based milks.
