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 or ordering in 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.
