Reduce your meat and dairy

'What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make'

- Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE 

We can't buy ourselves out of the #ClimateEmergency, nor can we talk ourselves out of the #ClimateEmergency. It is what we do that will make the difference.   

Number 2 on the Imperial College list of actions that will have the most positive impact on our climate is eat less meat and dairy. Reducing meat is similarly high on other notable lists.

In the spirit of making a difference and ‘walking the talk’ today I choose to turn my commitment into action and switch from vegetarianism to veganism.

For me veganism isn't a particularly difficult choice; it is a small step. I also fully respect veganism is not for everyone. The point I make is I have the power and privilege to be able to act; now more than ever I need to choose to use it.   

PS A study in 2021 by Oxford University found vegan diets to be cheaper than vegetarian or meat-based diets in high income countries.
