As you’re likely aware, climate change is the most pressing environmental issue we’ve ever faced as a civilization. Significant impacts are being felt around the world due to rising sea levels and extreme weather events. Greenhouse gas emissions from human activity, including raising animals for food, are driving climate change. In fact, the United Nations has described the livestock sector as, “one of the most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global.” Even more tragic, the effects are being shouldered by the world’s poorest and most vulnerable.
Animal agriculture accounts for 18% of all greenhouse gas emissions, more than the exhaust from all cars, planes, trains and ships combined! Eco-anxiety (yes, a real thing) is on the rise, and many of us are living with a chronic worry that if we don’t act now, it will be too late. The good news is that activism can help counter these feelings of helplessness, and we need all hands on deck to fight for a healthier planet!
In the big picture, policy changes, international co-operation, and the structural transformation of our economy will be critical to control run-away climate change… but these changes will be expensive and take years to implement. Urgent action is needed now and we want you to join in! Most people are unaware of how impactful eating less meat can be for addressing climate change. A global shift to consuming less meat could result in a quarter of the emission reductions needed to keep the world below the dangerous level of 2 degree Celsius warming.
Eating more plant-based foods is a delicious form of activism that will make you happier, healthier and in the long-run, confident knowing that you were part of the revolution that led to a more sustainable planet. When wielded effectively, that can of chickpeas will help to revolutionize your kitchen. The Chickpea Revolution Cookbook will give you fresh takes on old favorites, new ways of composing meals and the tools you need to incorporate more plant-based foods into your diet. We have your back when it comes to transforming what was once a meat dish into a Mother Nature loving meal.
Start making a difference now with that patient can of chickpeas waiting in your pantry!
