Silk Vs Milk

Pick up a carton of Silk®, and you’re sharing in our passion to do some world good. Beyond amazing taste, here are two earth-lovin’ reasons to feel fab about choosing plant-based (at least some of the time).

  • 80% Less Water

    Yep, cows get thirsty and eat crops that have to be watered too. So making a half gallon of Silk takes way less water than producing a half gallon of dairy milk.*

  • 40% Fewer Greenhouse Gasses

    We’ll pin this one mainly on the cows—and they can’t help it. Creating a half gallon of dairy milk generates a lot more greenhouse gas than a half gallon of Silk does.**
