A good choice also for the planet
Some international organizations working for nutritional awareness, such as ProVeg, point out that the choice for plant-based drinks instead of animal drinks also has an environmental motivation.

In addition, if we opt for organic plant-based drinks made with ingredients from organic farming, we will score another point in favor of the planet. Organic drinks guarantee that they have been manufactured using environmentally friendly production techniques, without using chemical pesticides or herbicides, without GMOs and without artificial preservatives.
Another relevant fact we should keep in mind to protect the environment when choosing a plant-based drink is the packaging. A carton elaborated with renewable materials such as cardboard or vegetable polymers (usually from sugar cane), is a good option for being environmentally friendly.
