What is plant-based milk's environmental impact?

They're made from soy, coconut or almonds, but are plant-based milks really that eco-friendly?

    How many acres are used with cattle? How much food does each cow require? How much water does it take to produce one pound of beef? How much waste does one cow create over its life time? How many acres are used to create these waste lakes? How much material is required to shelter these animals? How much fuel is used to take these dairy cows and beef cows to the slaughter house? How much fuel is required to then kill the cow and process the carcass? The list goes on... add that all up vs a tree that produces over and over again until it’s end of life, the amount of work and resources that go into one steak or one gallon of milk far exceeds one gallon of almond or coconut milk

    Very interesting information. Thank you. With regard to the choice of products for use is the choice of an individual ... Tradition, family, environment, everything matters ....

    Coconut milk is very good fresh - tinned ones are a compromise. I use them too (Ayam brand) for cooking or coffee. Everything has environmental impact. To US, Caribbean and South American countries are not very far coconut resource. Coconuts trees/palms are no bother - they don’t need farming in their native origins- they’re like weeds - growing everywhere, you (almost) can’t kill it if you try. Extremely useful, zero to very low maintenance, prolific, nutritious gift from the Creator. And I do agree, we should all use our own local produce. If milk and dairy is abundant where I live, I would use it, but only the best produce: from organically raised cows, grass fed, and dairy from raw (unpasteurised, unhomogenised ) milk.
