"The five largest meat and dairy corporations combined (JBS, Tyson, Cargill, Dairy Farmers of America and Fonterra) are already responsible for more annual greenhouse gas emissions than ExxonMobil, Shell or BP. "

I'm considering going to grad school for sustainable nutrition, in which my research would revolve around how to educate and/or make plant-based diets more accessible for environmental reasons.

QUORN OPENS “WORLD’S BIGGEST” MEAT-FREE MEAT FACILITY

"The vegan-friendly company expanded its production capacity to 1.33 million meatless products per week—the equivalent of meat produced by 1,600 cows."

I've only bought Quorn once. and that was just to see what it was. Now I think I want to buy stock. Granted buying beans in the bulk food bins are more economical, and healthy, and environmentally responsible. But "saving" 1,600 cows a week (is that right - a week?) is pretty f- awesome.
