How did the idea of ​​celebrating World Plant Milk Day come about?

The idea was voiced by animal rights defender, prominent activist and co-founder of the media organization Plant Based News Robbie Lokey with the participation of the International Food Advocacy Organization ProVeg. Robbie tried to draw the attention of the world society to the benefits of vegetable milk. Various countries became interested in the campaign, and an unusual holiday was born. In 2020, the company Switch4Good joined this movement to encourage even more people to become participants in the new trend “Future without dairy products”.

Benefits of vegetable milk

Plant milk is produced from various crops – soybeans, hemp, oats, cashews, etc. It has a pleasant taste, does not contain lactose, is rich in vitamins and minerals.

  • More than 65% of the world’s population has congenital lactose intolerance.

Such people experience abdominal pain, nausea, gas formation, and diarrhea. Joint pain and depression are also observed. Plant milk does not cause these problems.

Why should you pay attention to plant-based milk?

All over the world, millions of people refuse to drink animal milk. They do it consciously, taking care of their own health and worrying about animals and the ecology of the planet, because the dairy industry pollutes ecosystems.
