Tell Your Senators to Oppose the Dairy Pride Act

Dairy cows

In the United States, dairy production has a devastating impact on our land, water and air — producing more emissions each year than 9 million cars.

That's why we must stand up now in defense of Earth-friendly diets. Just as more people are turning to plant-based alternatives like soy, almond and coconut milks, the dairy industry and its allies in Congress are trying to stamp out the competition.

The recently proposed Dairy Pride Act (S.130) would prevent plant-based alternatives from using basic terms such as "milk," "yogurt" and "cheese." The bill would also force the Food and Drug Administration to penalize any company using these terms. If the legislation passes, it'll put plant-based dairy alternatives at a disadvantage in stores.

Using the form on this page, tell your senators to oppose the Dairy Pride Act.

Please take action by May 16, 2018.
