Protest Starbucks Vegan Upcharge, Scarborough

April 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join local activists and PETA supporters in protesting Starbucks’ Vegan Surcharge! Animal rights advocates, lactose-intolerant coffee drinkers, and environmentalists want Starbucks to drop its dairy-free milk surcharge.

Chains including Tim Hortons, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Noah’s New York Bagels, Philz Coffee, and Costa Coffee already offer vegan milk at no extra charge, but Starbucks still tacks an extra fee on drinks made with plant milks. Everyone should be able to order vegan milk at no extra charge. By charging an additional fee for vegan milks, Starbucks is likely deterring some people from trying them in their drinks.

Starbucks admits that cow’s milk is its biggest source of carbon dioxide emissions, yet it’s still charging up to 80 cents more for lattes made with oat, soy, coconut, or almond milk rather than cow’s milk.

WHERE: Starbucks, 1900 Eglinton Ave E, Scarborough, ON M1L 2L9
