The Plant-Based Treaty is a grassroots campaign calling for a global treaty to address the climate crisis and other environmental problems caused by animal agriculture. The treaty would halt the expansion of animal agriculture, promote a shift to plant-based diets, and protect ecosystems.

Why is the Plant-Based Treaty Needed?

Animal agriculture is a main contributor to the global climate change crisis, water pollution, and deforestation. It is also a significant source of greenhouse gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide. These gases are a major driver of climate change and are also responsible for other environmental problems, such as ocean acidification.

The Plant-Based Treaty would help to address these problems by halting the expansion of animal agriculture and promoting a shift to plant-based diets. Plant-based diets are much more sustainable than animal-based diets and can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, water pollution, and deforestation.

What are the Goals of the Plant-Based Treaty?

The Plant-Based Treaty has three main goals:

  1. Halt the expansion of animal agriculture. Ban the construction of new animal farms and slaughterhouses by phasing out existing farms and slaughterhouses over time.
  2. Promote a shift to plant-based diets. Educate people about the environmental benefits of plant-based diets and by making plant-based foods more affordable and accessible.
  3. Protect ecosystems. Protect forests, grasslands, and other ecosystems that are threatened by animal agriculture.

How Can I Support the Plant-Based Treaty?

There are a number of ways to support the Plant-Based Treaty. You can:

  • Sign the petition to call on governments to negotiate a Plant-Based Treaty.
  • Spread the word about the Plant-Based Treaty and its goals.
  • Support organisations that are working to promote plant-based diets and protect the environment.

The Plant-Based Treaty is a bold and ambitious proposal. Still, it is urgently needed to address the climate crisis and other environmental problems caused by animal agriculture. By supporting the Plant-Based Treaty, you can help to create a more sustainable future for our planet.
