Starbucks To Move Toward Vegan Milks In Bid To Be More Sustainable
Starbucks is pushing ahead with its plans to become more sustainable and ditching dairy is one of its main priorities.
The coffee chain recently announced that it is aiming to halve its carbon emissions with a number of new environmentally friendly policies.
In addition to implementing new eco-friendly actions, the coffee giant has revealed plans to encourage consumers to choose vegan alternatives to cow’s milk.
The chain has admitted “that cow’s milk is its biggest source of carbon dioxide emissions” and now wants to make big changes.
Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson has promised that “alternative milks will be a big part of the solution.” Adding that “the consumer-demand curve is already shifting.”
Plant-based dairy alternatives at Starbucks currently include soy, coconut, and almond. Select stores are also serving oat milk.
