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.
