Nearly one-third of Britons has cut down on meat
The annual survey conducted by British supermarket chain Waitrose has revealed that the Britons have not just reduced their plastic usage after watching ‘Blue Planet II’, nearly one-third of Britons today are either vegetarians/vegans or have turned ‘flexitarian’ – which means they have consciously reduced the amount of meat they consume.
Reasons cited were animal welfare concerns (55 percent), personal health (45 percent), and environmental concerns (38 percent). Other reasons included not liking meat, meatless food tasting better, and wanting to be fashionable.
This is good news at a time when we desperately need it. So many of the issues our planet faces seem insurmountable, but this report is a reminder that individual efforts, though small, add up over time.
