Plate up for the Planet!

by Andrew Williams | July 27, 2017

You know we're all about fair trade here at Rabbit Towers - it's at the heart of what we do. But that doesn't mean it's all we care about. We're also passionate about the environment, and ways we can safeguard the fragile world we call home. 

Many of you will know that as well as steering the ship at Eighteen Rabbit, Louise also works for the Vegan Society as their Head of Campaigns and Policy. This week, she's helped to launch the biggest campaign in the Society's history, Plate up for the Planet. They're challenging people to try veganism for seven days, to show the huge impact that animal agriculture has on the planet.  

Did you know that the global agriculture industry is responsible for more harmful greenhouse gas emissions than the whole of the transport sector combined? It makes you think - perhaps the answer to climate change was being handed to us on a plate all along!

 

If you're concerned about the environment, are a vegetarian who's been thinking about cutting out eggs and dairy, or just if you want to be part of the hottest food trend around (don't ask me - ask Miley Cyrus!), why not sign up today? You'll get seven days of cool recipes, hints and tips. You never know, you may love it so much you carry on!
