What led you to adopt a plant-based diet?

Waihi Leader - - News -

My first big mo­ti­va­tion was en­vi­ron­men­tal, when I re­alised that chang­ing to a plant-based diet would make an im­me­di­ate dif­fer­ence to my own en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact. The rea­son this mat­tered so much to me was that I could see my daugh­ter was deeply con­cerned about the state of the world she was grow­ing up in and ini­tially I didn’t know what I could do about it.

Dis­cov­er­ing I could in­stantly halve my green­house gas emis­sion from food was a key fac­tor, and as the health ben­e­fits be­came clearer as well I was sold.
