Portland, OR: Earth Day Vegan Latte Giveaway at Starbucks
Join PETA and Animal Rights Collective Portland (ARCPDX) supporters in protesting Starbucks for their vegan milk surcharge!
This is a multi-city day of action. If you are closer to one of the other cities view the full list of event pages here: https://www.facebook.com/ProtestforAnimalRights/events
Starbucks admits that cow’s milk is its biggest source of carbon dioxide emissions, yet it’s still charging up to 80 cents more for lattes made with oat, soy, coconut, or almond milk rather than cow’s milk.
If Starbucks truly wants to “invest in people and the planet” it will stop charging extra for the planet and animal-friendly vegan milks!
Panera, Tim Hortons, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Noah’s New York Bagels, Philz Coffee, and Costa Coffee already offer vegan milk at no extra charge, but Starbucks still tacks an extra fee on drinks made with plant milks.
Starbucks has had ample time to drop their surcharge for alternative milks, and if the surcharge isn’t gone by this day, they will be hearing from all of us.
WHERE: Starbucks at 1012 NW 21st Ave, Portland, OR 97209
