Purple Carrot describes itself as “the first 100% plant-based meal kit that helps people discover how delicious, healthy, and simple it can be to eat plant-based meals.”

The vegan company “offers breakfast, lunch and dinner options every week, sending customers pre-portioned ingredients and step-by-step instructions to create amazing plant-based recipes.”

Vegan Diet Sustainability

As the discussion around the climate crisis continues, experts are suggesting that switching to a plant-based diet is the quickest way to begin reducing one’s own carbon footprint.

Research shows that eating just one less burger a week can save the equivalent of 320 miles in carbon emissions. Additionally, if “the entire U.S. did not eat meat or cheese for just one day a week, it would be the equivalent of not driving 91 billion miles – or taking 7.6 million cars off the road.”

In terms of water consumption, it takes a shocking 1850 gallons of water to produce just 1lb of beef, whereas 1lb of vegetables can be grown with just 39 gallons. 

These figures illustrate how cutting back on animal products can help protect the health of the planet.
