Plant-based strength is rooted in plants, but this movement is much bigger than our dinner plate. And yet, the dinner plate is where it starts. A climate report has sparked action. When you purchase plants, you vote with your dollar. By doing so, you encourage farmers and grocers to produce more plants. By voting for plants we will reduce the need for animal agriculture. Most of the farmed land is used to grow corn here in the U.S. and most of that is used to feed the animals (livestock). Animals play an important role in a naturally healthy ecosystem, but industrial animal lots are far from natural. The FAO is working on global sustainable livestock initiatives. No animal sequesters carbon. Plants do. Here are some encouraging stories that are leading us in the right direction.
