Did anyone see this article we posted to social last week? Thought y’all would find it interesting, I realise the news article is from 6 months ago but it’s still really interesting.
It’s based on research by a guy called Joseph Poore. Absolutely fascinating study where he looked at the 40 foods that make up 90% of the global diet and looked at their environmental impact. But not just carbon emissions like most research is done - which brings up arguments about much vegan food being bad because of the air miles - but about carbon emissions, land usage, water usage, acidification and eutrophication.
Listening to a podcast about it he says that the impact of the lowest-impact animal products typically exceeds those of the highest-impact vegetable substitutes. For example this means that using any plant milk, from any corner of the earth, is better than cow’s milk from around the corner in terms of environmental impact.
Are many of you using Huel particularly for the environmental reasons of plant-base diet?
