Climate Awareness and Concern towards Animal Welfare Driving Consumers to Switch to Plant-Based Diet

The production of industrial farm animals emits climate-altering gases causing weather disruptions and a rise in temperature. A report by FASEB (Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) stated that the production of plant-based products emit ten times fewer greenhouse gases than the production of animal-based products.

Horrific practices like inhumane handling of domesticated animals and animal slaughter not only causes immense suffering to animals but also to our environment. Adopting a plant-based diet or at least a flexitarian diet, to begin with, would result in a decrease in demand for meat, dairy products, and other animal products, gradually relieving the plight of animals on factory farms around the world.

In terms of nutritional availability, the relative cost of production and preparation, and general health, the plant-based foods have an upper hand over the animal based foods. Also, in terms of land usage, water usage, and greenhouse emissions, the plant based foods rather exhibit minimal requirement and role as compared to its counterpart. Realizing that adopting sustainable dietary patterns would help in protection of environment, the consumers would start switching to plant based diet.
