Panera Bread is another café that offers this famed seasonal drink—and with real pumpkin! Just be sure to ask for soy milk and skip the salted caramel sauce.—Whether it’s out of concern for one’s health, the environment, or animal welfare, it seems that everyone nowadays is switching to plant-based milk. In fact, the market for plant-based milk is expected to reach $16.3 billion globally by 2018. This is up from $7.4 billion in 2010.While dairy has proved detrimental to human health and contributes to environmental degradation on a massive scale, possibly the most important reason so many people are moving away from it is that dairy is unimaginably cruel.At dairy factory farms, cows are roughly handled, forcibly impregnated, and kept in terrible conditions. Their calves are torn away from them shortly after birth. Male calves are killed for veal. Females are raised to produce more milk, trapped in a cycle of abuse for years until they are considered “spent” and sent to slaughter.Fortunately, delicious dairy-free alternatives abound!
