    I am truly surprised that since you are being so environmentally conscious you still advertise almond milk. Did you not read how it is produced and how it’s overwhelming demand world wide kills billions of bees every year? We should all advocate against it! Please read some articles about this including the one in the Guardian -” the age of extinction” maybe that will open your eyes…

      Hey Magdalena! I have done a lot of research on this but thank you for sharing that article. The overall point is to encourage switching from dairy to alternative/plant-based milks so they reduce waste and plastic—and are overall better for the environment. While almonds do require quite a bit more water to produce, and maybe aren’t as great as say oat or hemp for the environment, oftentimes almond milk is the least “scary” switch to make and serves as a great stepping stone to then explore other plant-based alternatives. The goal in mind is to encourage less plastic, less waste. I included a bunch of other alternatives besides almonds as options.

      There’s no perfect way to be environmentally conscious, the goal is for everyone to be imperfectly conscious. And if switching from dairy means you only drink almond milk—that’s still a huge improvement if you want to compare almonds and the beef/dairy industry on water consumption and pollution.

      Thank you for sharing!
