While I don’t mind a glass of milk now and again, I do love the creamy, delicious taste of non-dairy Silk beverages. The smooth taste is just so satisfying and being able to choose from fun flavours including vanilla and chocolate is an added bonus. But while I knew just how tasty Silk beverages were, I didn’t know that buying Silk instead of milk could actually benefit the environment too!
Silk beverage generates 49% less greenhouse gas emissions and uses 76% less water than dairy milk, so buying Silk instead of milk will be sure to leave the earth smiling. And as if that wasn’t awesome enough, Silk Canada has recently partnered with Trees Canada, supporting the organization with a donation of $25,000 to help plant more trees and make our world a little greener!
So that you can help make a difference too, Silk Canada has launched a fun interactive app on its Facebook page. Simply visit the Silk Canada Carbon Calculator and choose one of seven pledges that will help to reduce your carbon footprint. Whether you decide to eat less meat or choose alternative transportation methods, each pledge you make will show you exactly how beneficial a small lifestyle change can be. I chose to pledge to reduce my shower time each morning and I was so surprised to see that doing so would reduce my carbon footprint by the same amount as taking seventeen cars off the road!
But the very best part is that for each pledge that is made, Silk Canada will donate an additional dollar to Trees Canada to help ensure that our environment is beautiful and secure for future generations, up to a maximum of an additional $25,000. So why not pick up a container of Silk and then head over to the Silk Canada Facebook page and make a pledge to reduce your carbon footprint? It’s a great way to see how a small change can make a big difference!
