What milk should we drink?
Supermarket shelves are filled with a wide variety of plant milks today, but which sort is the best choice in terms of environmental impact? A recent ranking reveals a considerable difference in environmental performance between different sorts of plant milk. Coconut milk is ranked as the worst alternative, causing destruction of rainforest and exploitation of workers, accompanied by almond milk, since the production of almonds in the US causes water stress and negative impact on pollinators. The unanimous winner in the ranking is oat milk, which is considered to be the most sustainable choice of plant milk, and in second place comes soy milk. However, whichever plant milk you choose is a better choice than dairy, regarding environmental impact including climate change.
