By 2050, the world will host 10 billion people. Feeding the planet without destroying it is a challenging, task. However we can start today! For decades, the major nations of the world bumped into protocols to be applied in order to reduce pollution and avert environmental disaster. When we think about possible solutions for the problem of climate change, we should consider starting by our eating habits. Therefore, It is the up to the individual to be an active part of the change towards greater sustainability. We must be aware of the fact that our food choices have consequences for us and for the whole planet. It is the power of simple choices in everyday life that, combined with those of others, can make the difference.
To produce a 150g burger takes 2400 liters of water. 4650 for a 300g beef steak, 7 times more than the water needed for legume cultivation. There are no differences if we analyze Co2 emissions and the exploitation of the land. Animal farming produces more greenhouse gases than all forms of transport in the world together, and 80% of the world's agricultural land is used to raise and feed livestock. By reducing meat consumption we could reduce the impact on the environment by about 20 %
All food giants are moving by expanding the offer in the world of frozen vegetable burgers imitating the organoleptic and structural characteristics of the meat itself. Supermarkets around the world are already inundated by these products, ready to be defreezed and consumed. Innovative and sustainable products but that actually contain between 50 and 70% water. As a result, more than half of transport around the world moves water by polluting the environment.

In recent decades industrial livestock farming has generated larger intensive livestock farming with unnatural living conditions for animals and with a strong impact on the planet. An increased consumption of sustainable foods with a high protein intake of plant origin also contributes to improve the living conditions of the animals in the farms, considering them more and more as living beings and less and less as fillers of our dishes.
