Annnd they're amazing 😍👌🏼 Repost @callstoaction
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that we, here @callstoaction, are vegan. We made the transition many years ago for climate change and it felt a lot better not contributing to the suffering of animals.
We would love to encourage EVERYONE to make that change, but if you are too stubborn or time pressed to make the adjustment in your life, right now, then (as Environmental Defense Fund reports) - if each person in America replaced chicken with plant-based foods at just ONE MEAL, per week, the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off U.S. roads.
Indeed, in order to curb climate change, we must eat more plant-based foods and fewer animal-based foods. And fortunately, the free market is helping us do exactly that. Companies are now sprouting up left and right, all over the world, to produce meat-like but meat-free foods - such as @whatthepitta
Meat-free chicken and burgers that hold nearly the same taste and texture as their meaty counterparts are gaining in popularity. At mainstream grocery stores nationwide, one can even buy fish-free seafood and vegan tartar sauce to top it with. Indeed, the sector is growing rapidly: The plant-based meat sector is expected to reach $5.2 billion by 2020, and new data from Market Research Future shows the plant-based cheese sector will reach $3.5 billion soon after. As well, non-dairy milks (like almond) now account for more than 10% of all fluid milk sales in the U.S., with sales of cow’s milk projected to drop 18% between 2015 and 2020. 🙌
