denver – Because Starbucks accepted that animal-friendly vegan milks are better for the planet but insists on charging them extra, PETA supporters will congregate outside the Mall Street chain location on Earth Day (April 22) to intercept potential customers with free cold brew nitro mochas made with creamy oat milk . The action comes after almost 150,000 PETA supporters asked Starbucks to end its vegan supplement.
When: Friday, April 22, 1 p.m.
Or: Starbucks, 934 16and St. Mall, Denver
“Starbucks is treaty customers who care about animals and the planet on everyday Earth Day,” said PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. Cruelty to cows aside, dairy is an environmental disaster, with its methane emissions and the destruction of forests for pasture, so PETA is calling on the company to celebrate honestly by pricing vegan milks at or below the price of cow’s milk.
PETA commemorates Earth Day with vegan coffee drink giveaways outside other Starbucks locations in Portland, Oregon; West Palm Beach, Florida; and several other cities.
PETA — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or otherwise abuse” — opposes speciesism, a human supremacist worldview.
