After hearing from PETA that endangered macaques are chained, whipped, and forced into a lifetime of labor picking coconuts in Thailand, national plant-based meal kit delivery company Purple Carrot decided to end its contract with its Thai coconut milk supplier and switch to using coconut milk from the Philippines and Sri Lanka.
