Fervor for Plant-Based Meat Could Help Tackle Climate Change

 

Can we, as good stewards of the world, address our collective impact on the environment? Most professional climate researchers agree that to do so, rather than make small personal changes to our daily habits, we need to address the few companies and industries most heavily polluting the earth.

Practices like regenerative agriculture are part of the recommended actions, but could there be a bigger culture shift underway with plant-based meat? If the number of investors and popular brands entering the plant-based meat industry is any indication, this could be a market ripe for transforming our agricultural footprint.
