From Moo to Ooh: Why Oat Milk is the Better Choice for the Earth 🌎
Happy belated Earth Day, everyone! With Earth Day being just two days ago, it's still on our minds how we can continue to treat our earth with kindness! Did you know that switching to oat milk can have a big positive impact on the environment? Here are some quick reasons why:
Water usage: It takes about 628 gallons of water to produce one gallon of dairy milk, while it only takes around 48 gallons of water to produce one gallon of oat milk. That's over 10 times less water than dairy milk!
Land usage: Cows require 28 times more land to produce a liter of milk compared to the land required for oat milk production.
Greenhouse gas emissions: Dairy cows are responsible for producing 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions, which is more than the emissions from the entire aviation industry. In contrast, producing oat milk emits 80% less greenhouse gas emissions than dairy milk production.
Animal welfare: Oat milk is a plant-based option that doesn't require the use of animals. The dairy industry has been criticized for its treatment of cows, including the use of hormones, antibiotics, and cramped living conditions.
