World Plant Milk Day 2022 (22th August): History, Significance, and Celebration

World Plant Milk Day is celebrated worldwide on the 22nd of August. This day commemorates the significance of plant-based milk and why we have to make a switch from dairy. Plant-based milk is obtained from the plant sources like grains, nuts, barley, maize, oats, coconut, rice and so on. There are plenty of varieties of plant milk like almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, oat milk, rice milk and so on. This day was founded by Robbie Lockie, co-founder of plant-based news. This day is a carnival for all the gems who are shifted to vegan milk and have quit dairy. 

Why is World Plant Milk Day Celebrated? 

Robbie Lockie, co-founder of plant-based news along with Klaus Mitchell another co-founder of plant-based news. They have turned themselves into vegans and wanted to spread awareness about veganism and its benefits. The spreading of myths about emerging veganism had made them step in and take responsibility to provide authentic information about veganism. That’s all how plant-based news started. In 2018 plant-based news partnered with pro veg and commemorated World Plant Milk Day

Why Do We Have to Switch to Plant-Based Milk?

Cows’ milk is the primary cause of allergies in newborn babies and many suffer from allergies due to dairy products. 

Why Vegan Milk is Best Over Dairy Milk?

  • No allergies can be seen like cows’ milk allergy.
  • Dairy milk can cause milk intolerance.
  • Breeding and feeding animals consume a lot of water and land usage.
  • More carbon footprint is because of the dairy industry.
  • Many lifestyle diseases and skin allergies are due to dairy products.

If you are suffering from such kinds of allergies, please consult IAFA and treat your allergies and live a happy and healthier life.
