Going vegan for the environment

Animal agriculture is having a devastating effect on our environment, both here in the UK and globally; contributing to climate change, deforestation, water pollution and the depletion of natural resources.

Animal agriculture facts!

In short, animal agriculture is killing the planet. It is a huge waste of resources and land, and causes huge amounts of deforestation, and greenhouse gas emissions.

The production of plant-based foods requires less land, fewer resources, and produces vastly fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

In fact, research shows that the carbon footprint of a vegan diet can be as much as 60% smaller than a meat-based one, and 24% smaller than a vegetarian diet. The need for a shift to more plant-based diets is widely recognised by bodies such as the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (UN FAO).


“A vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth[.]” – Prof. Joseph Poore
