Statistics show that in 2021 over 20% of Europeans are actively reducing their meat intake.This is GREAT news

Reason 1:

As more people look for plant-based options more investors looks for plant-based alternative products. It is estimated that by 2025 the plant-based protein market will reach over $8.5B. Whether you’re pescetarian, vegetarian, or flexitarian, every time you’re consciously refusing meat, the plant-based industry gains in popularity.

Reason 2:

Livestock is the largest source of anthropogenic methane emissions—a GHG. Overfishing is killing our oceans. Decreasing demand worldwide lowers emissions and alleviates fishstocks.

Reason 3:

The improper disposal of nutrient-rich animal waste is the leading cause for ocean dead zones. For example the US livestock industry produces as well as excess fertilizer run-off from the production of animal feeds such as corn and soy. These end up in the gulf of Mexico causing eutrophication and the world’s largest dead zone. Check out this trendy app: Part Vegetarian to follow your journey as a flexitarian.
