Allplants urges the public to go meat-free once a week

Plant-based food brand Allplants has called for a food system overhaul and has urged the public to go meat-free one day a week.

In a new report, Allplants showed that eating a plant-based diet one day per week reduces an individual’s carbon footprint by more than 10%, the equivalent of not driving for a month.

Furthermore, going vegan can reduce a person’s food carbon footprint by 85%.

“Scientists have given their final warning on the climate, and we must face up to the fact that a complete overhaul of our food system is needed,” Allplants chief executive and founder Jonathan Petrides said.

“Our report today is our line in the sand, and we’re urging members of the public to try out a plant-based meal a week. Just this one small step will reduce your food carbon footprint by 10%.

“If we can change the way we eat, we can change the world. And we don’t need a handful of people being perfectly sustainable, we just need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”

Moreover, the company also outlined its sustainability commitments, including eliminating palm oil, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and drastically reducing its use of air freight.

Petrides added: “We recognise that businesses have a role to play, too. So we are laying out our new sustainability commitments to hold ourselves accountable, and lead from the front.”
