How much meat is that?
As an approximation: in the UK, we currently eat 1.8kg of meat per week on average. The global average is about 1kg per week. Yet, animal agriculture uses 83% of global farmland, while providing only 18% of calories. Some methods of Animal Agriculture are great for conservation and More Than Carrots is completely in favour of such. However, we want to contribute to reaching a sustainable balance.
It’s difficult to predict how much meat will be sustainable in the long-term and what will be a good balance, partly because our options are constantly changing. Maybe one day we’ll eat mainly lab-grown meat and we can eat as much as we want without causing any damage. However, for now, that kind of meat isn’t available at scale and it’s not clear yet how long it’ll take until it can be produced in a cost-efficient way.
With technology being where it is, it’s an undisputed fact that the amount of meat we currently eat is unsustainable.
