I'm a few days late to the party, but just discovered this press release about an alliance between Turtle Mountain's So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage (my new favorite multi-purpose milk alternative) and the Farm Sanctuary. It looks like a very worthy cause, and I plan on sending in my UPC's (note: Turtle Mountain offers coupons for this product line on their website and sometimes right on the package!). See the details below to learn how you can enjoy some non-dairy milk while helping to save and protect some farm animals (see cute pictures below, too) …
September 2, 2010 – Farm Sanctuary Partners with Dairy-Free Foods Pioneer Turtle Mountain to End the Abuse of Dairy Cows One Creamy, Delicious Sip at a Time – These days, milk can be made from almost anything — soy, rice, almonds, hemp, oats, coconut, the list goes on and on — and with so many healthy and delicious nondairy milks available for purchase in mainstream supermarkets, more and more Americans are making these cruelty-free choices. Now through September 30, Oregon-based natural foods company Turtle Mountain, a pioneer in the creation and production of natural dairy-free products, has teamed up with Farm Sanctuary, the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization, to ensure that every creamy, delicious sip will go even further toward ending the abuse of farm animals by donating $1.00 (up to $5,000) to the nonprofit organization for every UPC that is cut out and sent to them from any flavor of So Delicious™ Dairy Free Coconut Milk.
“Here at Turtle Mountain, we believe no one should have to sacrifice delicious, creamy foods to eat compassionately, said John Tucker, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Technology at Turtle Foods. “We are honored to support the life-saving work of Farm Sanctuary and their mission to make the world a more compassionate place for all beings by creating the most decadent dairy-free indulgences on the market today and donating a portion of the proceeds to support their vital rescue, education and advocacy efforts on behalf of the victims of the food animal industry.”
