Vegan Protein Powder with a purpose

Approximately one quarter of all green house gas emissions come from the global food supply chain, which means there is a huge opportunity to reduce emissions by a significant amount in this area. This is achievable by increasing the proportion of protein consumption from sustainable sources.

Protein is essential for the cells in our bodies to grow and repair, humans need protein to lead healthy lives. Unfortunately, some common sources of protein, namely those from animals, have a significant negative impact on our environment and are major contributors to climate change. This issue is being compounded by the world’s growing population – more people means more protein is required which means even more environmental damage will occur if we continue to derive protein from the same sources.

Fortunately there are plant based protein sources which are much more efficient in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and land & water use. We can significantly reduce the ecological impact of the agriculture industry by increasing the proportion of protein we consume from plant based sources. As depicted below, vegan diets are the gold standard in regard to environmental impact. However even a flexitarian diet of two-thirds vegan meals can reduce environmental impact by over 50%.
