The consumption of animals for protein is responsible for over 18% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. A cow consumes 75-300kg of plant material to produce 1kg of beef protein. In order to produce enough animal feed to meet this demand, intensive agricultural practices are used that cause a wide range of environmental detriment
Hemp seeds are the ideal alternative. They’re comprise of over 33% of highly digestible protein, can be grown sustainably without the need for chemical inputs, remove more carbon from the atmosphere than an established forest, and their subtle nutty flavour means they can be easily included into any diet.
