Our food causes climate change

Food is the biggest single cause of climate change.

Meat production creates more emissions than all the cars, planes, trains, and ships in the world put together.

To fix this we need to change what we eat.

  • You don't have to change your whole diet.
  • Small changes to what you eat would make a big difference.
  • Eat less meat, less junk, and more vegetables.
  • Halving the amount of meat eaten in the UK would stop over 13 million tonnes of climate damaging emissions each year.

    We have created a simple calculator. Tell it the changes you'll make to what you eat, and it'll say what difference this makes.
