Endorse the Plant Based Treaty

We the undersigned call on Bristol City Council to endorse the Plant Based Treaty.

Animal agriculture is a key driver of deforestation, accelerating greenhouse gases, land-use change, ocean dead zones, and water and air pollution.

Cuts to methane emissions are our best hope of keeping 1.5 alive over the coming decades, due to a third of methane emissions coming from animal farming.

Joining towns and cities across the UK in endorsing the Plant Based Treaty will help pressure national governments to:

1. Halt the global expansion of deforestation attributed to animal agriculture.
2. Incentivise a plant-based food system.
3. Encourage public information campaigns about the benefits of plant-based foods.
4. Free up land to rewild and reforest the Earth.
5. Allow a just transition to more sustainable jobs, healthier people and a healthier planet.

Eat plants, plant trees, endorse the plantbasedtreaty.org
