Vegetarian and Vegan

There are many reasons for becoming vegetarian or vegan including health benefits, lessening your environmental impact and animal welfare concerns. It's also getting easier in many Western countries with many restaurants and cafes offering vegetarian and vegan cuisine.

The world has seen a steady increase in consumption of meat and dairy products as people become better off financially. This is particularly evident in the developing world. The result is a major drain on global food resources as more and more food is grown solely to feed livestock. The livestock industry is also responsible for up to 18% of greenhouse gas emission and significant water degradation.

Weather you are considering changing your lifestyle to become vegetarian or vegan or have already made the switch, there should be something here for you.
