Dairy-Free, the Better Choice.
Better for you
A dairy-free diet can help relieve symptoms of tiredness, gas, bloating, congestion, and can even reduce acne!
BONUS: Dairy-free product swaps (like almond milk instead of dairy milk) are 100% free of cholesterol, lactose, growth hormones and antibiotics.
Better for the environment
A 2,000-cow dairy operation creates almost a quarter of a million pounds of manure daily, which contaminates groundwater, leaches chemicals and antibiotics into rivers, and releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Better for animals
We're never told that cows can only lactate when they have a baby to feed. We're also never told that after enduring nine long months of pregnancy and hours of labor, a dairy cow's newborn is dragged away to be slaughtered or used.
Surely, we can agree that these newborn calves — the forgotten "waste products" of the dairy industry — and their moms deserve better. Don't you?
