Clean Plates believes in the collective power individual, ecologically conscious choices can have on the planet. For instance, if we all gave up meat for just one day a week, it would be the equivalent of taking 7.6 million cars off the road, saving millions of gallons of water (it takes 2,000 gallons of water to produce just 1 pound of beef) and significantly cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
So how can we all collectively help impact the food system and especially animal agriculture? And what steps can we each take to improve our culinary footprint, reducing meat consumption, up plant proteins, and upgrade the food system?
These fascinating topics are the focus of the Reducetarian Summit, a two-day conference in New York City that will serve as a platform to explore practical solutions towards a more humane, sustainable food system. The Summit follows the launch of The Reducetarian Solution, Brian Kateman’s informative book about the transformative impact reducing meat consumption can have on the individual and the planet. The book doubles as a practical guide, including tips and 40 recipes to help the reader join the movement.
Learn practical steps and meet with prominent leaders from around the world by attending the Summit. The weekend will include panel discussions, workshops, and healthy meals from fresh&co.
The Summit will take place at New York University on May 20th and 21st. Register now to reserve your spot and be a positive force for good in the food industry.
