From vegan cakes to ‘No Beef Burgers’, even loyal meat eaters and cheese enthusiasts have come round to plant-powered dishes. Despite the fact that 40% of food waste is carbohydrates, it is undoubtedly meat that is the biggest offender when it comes to carbon emissions - according to PETA animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all the world’s transportation systems combined. Choosing to go vegetarian or vegan when eating out is a great way of reducing your environmental impact and supporting Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production. Here are the vegan and vegetarian restaurants that we love.
