There are so many reasons to eat a plant-based diet. It is better for the planet, helps combat climate change, prevents the suffering of farmed animals, and reduces the risk of serious illness in those who eat it. It’s what we call a win-win-win-win.
To protect the planet
Animal farming is a significant driver of climate change, deforestation, and species loss, and it pollutes the air, waterways and earth.
To help feed the global population
If everyone in the world ate a plant-based diet, there would be enough food available to feed the whole human population and more.
To end the suffering of farmed animals
Every year, billions of animals endure miserable lives inside factory farms. They are freed only when they are loaded onto trucks and sent to slaughter.
To show benevolence to all living beings
Increasingly people interpret having dominion over living beings as humane stewardship rather than ruthless exploitation.
