Vegans aren’t the only people trying to help the environment though, there are loads of ways to help and just because someone isn’t changing their diet doesn’t mean they aren’t trying to help
YOU CAN’T EAT MEAT AND BE AN ENVIRONMENTALIST
you can be. The same way you can be an environmentalist and have a drivers licence or own a car. Veganism is the right choice for me, but I still use my car to get to and from school. we’re not perfect just because we choose to be vegan. Yes. I think more people should go vegan, but they need to make that choice themselves.
The thing is, veganism is something that most people can easily give up without sacrificing anything. It is the easiest way for the majority of the population to not contribute to pollution, animal and human exploitation…unlike transportation.
I live in an area that literally depends on me having my own car to get to work. The public transportation here is shit (I know/have known many people who have to use it and they have huge problems with it) and I don’t have the time to constantly bike to where I need to go. I don’t sacrifice anything being a vegan.
Obviously there are obstacles for people to go vegan (and by obstacles I mean REAL ones) but getting as close to it as possible is the better option.
Also, eating meat and dairy causes way more devastation to the environment than not driving. It’s sort of a false comparison. There is nothing that people in first world countries do that is more environmentally destructive than consuming meat and dairy (and especially beef).
