Grow Green – Vegan Society UK Reports

2 reports from the Vegan Society outline a transition from animal to plant-based agriculture in the UK.

Grow Green:

This report from the Vegan Society UK outlines the ways that a transition away from animal farming and towards growing protein crops for human consumption not only benefits the millions of farmed animals raised for slaughter each year, but also the health of the population and the health of our planet. The threat of climate change and the importance of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions over the next few decades makes eliminating our reliance on animal farming essential.

Grow Green II:

gg2The second report from the Vegan Society UK was written by the New Economics Foundation and declares that the UK’s food system is fundamentally broken, environmentally unsustainable and unhealthy. It calls on the Government to radically rethink the food we eat and crops we grow, and advises a shake-up in the UK agricultural system as it prepares to leave the European Union. Key recommendations include implementation of a farmed animal tax and a Protein Aid Scheme for those who grow plant protein crops such as peas, beans and lentils.
