The Willow Tea Room, a UK-based coffee house, has recently started selling camel milk coffee known as 'camelccinos.' The project was created in an effort to raise awareness about the complex issues communities are facing because of climate change.
The camel milk coffee is part of The Mercy Corps project, which supports over 140 female camel milk traders in Wajir, Kenya. The region has faced extreme hardships, including severe food insecurity, because of changing climates. "We hope this fun initiative will help highlight the importance of supporting communities on the front lines of climate change to find ways to adapt and improve their livelihoods," says Simon O'Connell, the executive director of Mery Corps.
As climate change becomes a growing concern for many populations, products that seek to support the impacted communities are becoming more prevalent.
