[Montana Daily Gazette] While Idaho seems like a fairly conservative place across the state, its university campuses are proving to have a different set of values and priorities. Students at the University of Idaho on Wednesday protested a Starbucks near the campus for not offering free vegan milk-alternatives.
Please note that Starbucks provides vegan milk-alternatives. But the students want it for free.
Sponsored by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and led by student protestor and president of the campus’ Local Herbivore Society (such a thing actually exists), Kaylee Carr, the students claim they desire to “peacefully raise awareness about the fact that Starbucks is penalizing people for choosing a healthier drink option that doesn’t support animal abuse and is better for the environment by charging extra for plant-based milk options.”
The student leader told Campus Reform, “We are urging Starbucks to stop charging extra for vegan milks because Starbucks shouldn’t be penalizing people for choosing a healthier option that doesn’t support animal abuse and is better for the environment.”
