The average person could save a staggering amounts of water by choosing plant milk over dairy, according to the Humane Society, which has chosen today – World Plant Milk Day – to highlight this research.

World Plant Milk Day (WPMD), an initiative conceived by Robbie Lockie – Co-founder of Plant Based News. There are so many reasons to do ditch dairy, like improving your health, and helping stop the exploitation of cows in the dairy industry.

And as the Humane Society says, plant milk is also more eco-friendly. Someone who drinks 82 liters of cow’s milk a year would save 328 baths of water by switching to a soy milk alternative.

Consumer choices

“With the plethora of plant-based milks out there, it has never been easier to ditch dairy,” Claire Bass, Director of Humane Society International UK, said in a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living.

“Plant-milks produce far fewer greenhouse gas emissions than cow’s milk, so switching to plant-based products helps combat climate change, and saves cows from suffering too.
“Dairy-alternatives can be found in all reputable supermarkets so we urge conscious consumers to consider making the switch this World Plant Milk Day.”
