Having recently watched ‘Cowspiracy’ I’m finding it difficult to justify continuing to eat dairy products. In terms of milk substitutes, what is the most environmentally friendly option? Am I right in thinking almond milk is not at all good in this respect?

Soy and oat are the most sustainable. Almond uses more water compared to oat for example, but it still has a much lower environmental impact than dairy milk so in that sense it’s still the better option smile

I believe oat milk is one of the better ones. That's what we have.
