World Plant Milk Day

August 22nd is World Plant Milk Day, a day we all celebrate the unstoppable trend of dairy free milk.

Cows Rejoice!
The global market for plant-based milk is forecast top a massive $16.3 billion dollars in 2018 – up dramatically from $7.4 billion in 2010. This is resulting in thousands of dairy farms closing, with recent reports showing more than a 1,000 closing in the UK since June 2013.

Dairy-free for Good Health!
There is a long-standing misconception that we need dairy milk for good health, especially calcium for strong bones. However, research over the past 20 years suggests the opposite: osteoporotic bone fracture rates are actually highest in countries that consume the most dairy, calcium, and animal protein. There is now extensive evidence that consuming milk or dairy products may contribute to the risk of several chronic health conditions like prostate and ovarian cancers, autoimmune diseases, and some childhood ailments. Learn more HERE

Plant milk is better for the environment, better for animal welfare and better for your health. There are so many different varieties to try these days, gone are the days when there was only soya milk available. My own favourite is Oat milk – if you haven’t tried them yet then give one a go.
