Summer Solstice Celebration at Camber @ Camber

Camber is throwing a Summer Solstice celebration at their downtown all day cafe. They’re partnering with Oatly to serve up iced oat milk lattes for $1 all day. Camber’s iced lattes are made with their caramel-forward Big Joy espresso. They love the reduced environmental impact of oat milk. Fun fact: growing oats requires less that 1/6 the amount of water of growing almonds!

To top things off, Oatly is vegan, gluten free, nut free, soy free, and GMO free. And on Friday, June 21st, it’ll nearly be free-free 🙂
