Vegetarian and vegan diets minimise climate change, as animal-based agriculture is a big producer of greenhouse gases. There are also obvious animal welfare benefits associated with these diets.

Costs and Benefits

Vegetarian or vegan based diets help minimise climate change. Animal agriculture is a significant contributor to global climate change. Some sources claim livestock and their by-products account for around 18% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.

There are also obvious animal welfare benefits associated with vegetarian and vegan based diets.

Vegetarian or vegan-based meals are generally cheaper to prepare than meat-based meals.
