How sustainable are milk alternatives really?
Drinking cow’s milk is now frowned upon: for health or ethical reasons or because of climate protection. There has to be an alternative. But are plant-based milk alternatives really better for the climate? Depends on!
An overview of the ecological balance of the popular alternatives
For those who do not drink cow’s milk, herbal substitutes are a good taste alternative. But as with many products, it is worth taking a closer look. Take a look at where the raw materials come from and which other ingredients have been added to the milk / drinks. If you are primarily concerned with protecting the climate, oat milk is a good alternative to cow’s milk . Preferably in organic quality with oats from Europe.
