Los Angeles to endorse Plant Based Treaty!

25 września 2022

As the Organisers of the campaign for Plant Based Treaty claim: „The adoption of a Plant Based Treaty as a companion to the UNFCCC/Paris Agreement will put food systems at the heart of combating the climate crisis. The Treaty aims to halt the widespread degradation of critical ecosystems caused by animal agriculture, to promote a shift to more healthy, sustainable plant-based diets, and to actively reverse the damage done to planetary functions, ecosystem services, and biodiversity.”

Los Angeles has become the first major American city to support the Plant Treaty! A resolution to that effect has been introduced to the Los Angeles city council. As we learn on Plant Based Treaty website: „It was LA City Councilman Paul Koretz, long known as a climate progressive and animal lover, who introduced the resolution that requests that the City of Los Angeles endorse the Plant Based Treaty!”

The future of our planet is highly influenced by our governments’ decisions regarding animal agriculture and the transformation of the food system. Animal production is currently a leading contributor to climate catastrophe, habitat destruction, biodiversity decrease, world hunger, zoonotic and population-related diseases, and water, soil, and air pollution. It is the highest time for a systemic change!

We are looking forward to seeing the Plant Based Treaty endorsed by Polish cities as well!
