World Plant Milk Day

Happy World Plant Milk Day, JOI community! World Plant Milk Day is an international celebration dedicated to raising awareness of the health and environmental benefits of ditching dairy; the HUGE selection of plant-based milk alternatives available; and the nearly endless culinary possibilities plant-based milks open up. 

So, basically, it’s our favorite day of the year here on the JOI team.

And, at the heart of World Plant Milk Day is their 7 day dairy-free challenge—which we are totally on board with. Whether you’ve been hemming-and-hawing about making a dairy-free commitment for who-knows-how-long or you’re just curious to see how your system reacts to a dairy-free routine, this is your chance. (If you’re already all-in on plant-based, feel free to participate, because sometimes we all need to bask in the glory of an easy win). Sign up for the official challenge to receive daily recipes and tips, but first, get inspired by these seven dairy-free swaps powered by JOI almond and cashew plant bases. We promise—no cow will be no problem.

Up your post-workout recovery routine with Low-Sugar Chocolate Milk Made with JOI

Our dairy-free version of chocolate milk made with JOI offers up more healthy unsaturated fats plus lets you control for sugar by using unsweetened cocoa powder.

JOI’s New Glass Containers: A More Sustainable, Reusable, Natural and Clean Packaging Alternative

From day one, sustainability has been a grounding value at JOI. However, we’ve also been realistic that our goals weren’t going to happen overnight. We’ve made improvements as it makes sense for our business and the customer experience we can provide, like launching Organic Oat Milk Powder in industry-leading fully compostable bags. Now, we’re super excited to transition to packaging that is just as natural and clean as our products. That means making the switch to glass jars for our conventional and organic almond, cashew, and hazelnut plant bases!  Learn all about "why" in this blog.

Why Compostable Packaging for JOI Oat Milk Powder?

We’re all trying to make the small changes to be more eco-friendly. For us at JOI, those changes start with our packaging.  This reality is something that’s been nagging at our team since JOI was founded. From the beginning, we’ve designed our plant base products to minimize environmental impact.  This means we’re rolling out something we are pretty proud of—our new Organic Oat Milk Powder is hitting shelves as the first ever dairy alternative in fully compostable packaging. And no, we have no shame about making that humble brag.
