Vegan Week Virtual Show 2021: Plant-based eating for the planet: The benefits of plant-based diets for personal and planetary health – Emma Strutt

The need to shift towards sustainable eating patterns has never been more urgent, yet our global food system remains the single largest greenhouse gas emitting sector in the world and is a significant contributor to the overstep of multiple planetary boundaries. To reduce our environmental footprints, the biggest step we can take as individuals, is to consume more plant-based foods.

Learn about the current environmental impact of our food and dietary choices and how plant-based eating patterns can benefit both human and planetary health.
