Eating vegan is one of the best ways to reduce your environmental impact on the earth. Rearing livestock produces a lot of greenhouse gases which leads to global warming. Cattle ranching is one of the main reasons for deforestation which is a key factor of climate change that will cause many problems for future generations. Therefore, by reducing your weekly meat intake you can help to reduce energy consumption, slow down climate change, and get health benefits from eating fresh vegetables and fruits. At Sancho’s we care about the environment and having a positive, sustainable impact on the world. So, we are listing our top 10 vegan recipes right now!
