Op-ed Addresses “Environmentally Harmful” Government Food Policies

The Plant Based Foods Association authored a recent op-ed in The Hill noting how "government policies continue to support environmentally harmful meat production." Authors Michele Simon and Elizabeth Kucinich write:  "While eating an 8-ounce steak emits comparable emissions to driving a car 29 miles, consuming a similar meat substitute is comparable to driving just 3 miles. These findings point toward yet another strong argument for consumers to shift away from eating destructive meat products to eco-friendlier products, including meat substitutes."
