A whole latte love is heading to one airline. Delta Air Lines is the winner of PETA’s Compassion on Board Award for being the first major airline to offer oat milk creamer on all its flights departing the U.S. PETA pushed for this move, as it will help spare cows, whose calves are stolen from them in the dairy industry.
We’re celebrating Delta’s compassionate move and calling on other airlines, including Southwest and American, to follow its example.
Arrival of Vegan Creamer on Delta Flights Is a First-Class Upgrade for the Airline
By offering oat milk creamer on its flights, Delta is making the skies kinder to cows and more welcoming to the millions of Americans who don’t drink dairy for ethical, environmental, or health reasons.
The demand for vegan milks has skyrocketed, while the consumption of dairy milk has declined by 40% over the past 50 years. Millions of Americans—including an estimated 95% of Asian Americans and 80% of Indigenous and Black Americans—are lactose intolerant.
Cows on farms are forcibly inseminated, their beloved calves are torn away from them so that the milk meant to nourish those babies can be used by humans, and they’re slaughtered once their bodies wear out. In addition, animal agriculture is a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions, species extinction, deforestation, and other environmental disasters.
