Forced to drink fake milk?

Will Starbucks be forcing consumers to buy more fake milk?

Starbucks chief executive Kevin Johnson says he will ‘push consumers towards’ choosing vegan milk as part of a drive to become more sustainable.

The global coffee giant recently released a statement saying it aims to become ‘resource positive’ - storing more carbon than it emits, eliminate waste, and provide more clean freshwater than it uses.

Johnson said plant-based milk will be ‘a big part of the solution’ when it comes to reducing its footprint for greenhouse gases, water, and waste.

According to the chain, dairy products are responsible for over a fifth of its greenhouse gas emissions and over a seventh of its water use.
