By now, the threats posed to the environment by climate change are well known and widely acknowledged.
Discourse in recent years has moved in the direction of deciding which actions should be taken to combat the effects of climate change. Measures such as reducing carbon emissions and investing in clean energy have often been proposed, but something which has perhaps been overlooked is the role that meat-free diets can play in trying to preserve the planet.
This infographic by Caterquip clearly and vividly outlines just some of the reasons why adopting a vegan or vegetarian diet can help the environment, especially if such measures are taken by substantial numbers of people across the world.
While change is difficult to inspire, raising awareness is easier to achieve, and reading just some of the striking statistics contained in the infographic may be enough to convey the scale of the challenges our present dietary habits are causing, and illustrate how altering these habits could substantially benefit the planet over time.
