Drink plant milks this World Milk Day

For the animals

The dairy industry is horrifically cruel to animals. Dairy cows face a lifetime of forced impregnation, having their babies taken away from them, and then when they are no longer considered ‘profitable’, usually being sent to the slaughterhouse. If their babies are female, they will face a similar fate to that of their mother. If they are male, they are often sent to veal farms, killed shortly after birth, or even exported to other countries to be raised and slaughtered for consumption.
