So far, over 11,500 people have taken our Plate up for the Planet challenge and committed to going vegan for a week. Together, they saved enough CO2e to fly to the moon and back! Are you ready to join them? 

Chew on the facts...
One of the most effective ways to care for the planet is to change what you eat. The meat and dairy industry is responsible for as much greenhouse gases as the transport sector combined. Greenhouse gases are driving climate change - the biggest threat to the future of our planet.

Bear in mind that for every 100 calories fed to animals, we receive back only 12 calories by consuming their flesh and milk. Feeding crops to people rather than farmed animals could feed three billion more people. You can reduce your food-related carbon footprint by up to 50% if you go vegan.
