Thousands Urge Starbucks to Ditch Their Vegan Milk Surcharge
Starbucks offers a selection of delicious plant-based milks such as coconut, almond, oat, and soy. However, the company also rather unjustly charges an extra 80 percent for the cruelty-free milk options as compared to opting for dairy.
Other coffee chains like Tim Hortons, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Costa Coffee, Noah’s New York Bagels and Philz Coffee do not charge extra for plant-based alternatives.
Under the action alert campaign launched by People for Ethical Treatment for Animals, more than 46,000 people have signed the petition asking Starbucks to discontinue the vegan milk surcharge.
As PETA wrote on their official website, dairy milk has a trail of cruelty behind it, and opting for the humane alternatives is beneficial to the planet, human health, and of course, for the animals. The animal charity questions how a chain as massive as Starbucks can force its compassionate customers to pay 80 percent extra for vegan alternatives.
“By charging an additional fee for vegan milk, Starbucks is likely deterring some people from trying them in their drinks,” part of the letter reads. “Everyone should be able to order nondairy milk at no extra charge.”
The campaign now seeks to collect 80,000 requests. You can cast your vote here. What do you think? Have you noticed the extra charge for plant-based milk at Starbucks? Let me know your thoughts in comments.
