Starbucks customers are sick and tired of paying to pay extra for plant milk and thousands have now written to the coffee giant demanding equal prices. 

Starbucks thankfully now has a soy option, but charges vegans extra to opt for a dairy-free drink.

A petition launched by PETA now has more than 42,000 supporters, who have written to Starbucks using the animal welfare group’s action alert

“Swapping cruelly obtained cow’s milk for soy, almond, or coconut milk is beneficial to the planet, animals, and humans’ own health,” PETA said in a statement.

“Why, then, does a massive chain like Starbucks force its compassionate customers to pay upwards of 80 cents for vegan milk?”

Starbucks customers who choose vegan milk are fed up with paying extra, and have vented their frustration on social media.
