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.

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