This Earth Day (April 22nd) through the weekend, "Earth Day Latte" is available at participating Stumptown Coffee cafes , not only to enjoy a plant-based, "Rose Gold" flavored drink—Stumptown and Oatly will each donate $1 to Zero Foodprint, James Beard Foundation's 2020 Humanitarian of the Year. Stumptown will team up with Oatly, the world's original and largest oat milk company, to serve their first ever "Earth Day Latte," a "Rose Gold" flavored latte made with Oatly oatmilk, Supernature (Stumptown's new organic coffee blend), rose water, and honey—served up exclusively in a non-disposable mug or tumbler. "It might be the most sustainable latte you've ever had," says Jon Perry, VP of Direct-to-Consumer business at Stumptown. "Stumptown has been a proud partner with Oatly since 2018, from serving their oatmilk in all our cafes, to partnering on our lineup of Cold Brew with Oatly to-go products. We're thrilled to finally offer a 'signature drink' featuring Oatly as well." Since their initial partnership with Oatly in 2018, Stumptown has held flat pricing across all milk-based drinks. "Three quarters of our cafe customers order lattes with plant-based milk," says Perry. "And we believe choosing a plant-based diet shouldn't cost more."

The "Earth Day Latte" will be available at participating Stumptown locations in Portland, LA, and NYC (excludes airport and Kyoto locations). As the 2020 James Beard Foundation Humanitarian of the Year, Zero Foodprint helps farmers implement regenerative farming projects that restore soil biology, which naturally pull carbon out of the atmosphere, bring soil back to life, and replenish nutrients.
