Sustainability Drinks – Will Veganism Save the World?
July 14, 2016 @ 9:00 PM - July 15, 2016 @ 1:00 AM
Do you want to save the world? Going vegan might be a way. Come join us for a drink and find out!
We all heard about the environmental impact, the enormous water consumption and the carbon footprint of keeping the meat and dairy industry on a global scale and for a growing demand. Data suggests the global carbon footprint of the human kind can be dramatically decreased if we would switch to a plant based diet. At this event we try to shed a light on what is behind this idea, the data itself and if this could be a realistic approach.
We invited two wonderful speakers to provide us with a rich exchange of knowledge:
Lisa Hapke: Plant-based diet - a way to change the world?
Studying nutrition released my passion for environmental sustainability and highlighted how significant our daily choices are. A view that was confirmed by my master thesis, exploring the outcomes of plant-based nutrition. Now following a plant-based diet and driven by the threat of a unsustainable world for my children, my desire to promote sustainable choices, has intensified. Working at VEBU allows me to follow this passion. As part of the VEBU business team, licencing vegetarian and vegan products with the V-Label, we support customers who want to contribute to a sustainable future.
