WMD: World Milk Day or Weapon of Mass Destruction?

Did you know that June 1st is 'World Milk Day'? Or, as I think it should be called, WMD? I think this acronym is more than suitable because milk is a Weapon of Mass Destruction -- for cows, calves and the environment.

On WMD, let's remember the 1 million bobby calves who were taken from their grieving Mums, only to be slaughtered as 'waste products' of the dairy industry -- so that the milk nature intended for them could be fed to humans...

On WMD, let's spare a thought for the struggling Murray Darling Basin. It takes 200 litres of water to get one glass of milk. Not only is this the driest inhabited continent in the world -- our river systems are at record lows. But I'm taking shorter showers while the dairy industry is draining our waterways!

On WMD, let's think about how we can change things for the better. What better day than World Milk Day to mark the day you ditch dairy?

Going dairy-free is easier now than it's ever been. Every time you choose soymilk, rice milk, soy ice creams, dairy-free cream cheese, whipped 'cream', yoghurts, or any other dairy alternative, you're helping the cows, the environment and yourself!

Here's an amazing recipe to get you started... a non-dairy cheesecake (it's a Weapon of Mass Deliciousness!)

P.S. Did I mention, "Milk is for babies"? Check out our new WMD-inspired banner! Show you care by slapping it on your Myspace, or uploading it to Facebook :)

Thank you for spelling out the behind the scenes details of how we get our milk. Most people don't know. Even those who are 'vegetarian' but consume dairy products often are unaware of the horrors.
