Extra Information: This would stop vegans and those who are lactose intolerant from being charged extra for their milk. Compared to 0.6kg of greenhouse gas emissions as well as 1050 litres of water for a glass of cow's milk, oat milk produces just 0.18kg of emissions and only consumes 48 litres of water for a glass. We suggest using oat as a replacement as it is one of the most eco-friendly plant-based milks as well as being cheap and healthy. We are not suggesting that dairy be more expensive as we are aware that for some people's diets dairy may be necessary, but we do feel we shouldn't be discriminated against for our ethical and dietary choices.
