Thousands of copies of the Plant Based Treaty’s Guide to Glasgow will be handed out to visitors at COP26.
26 October, 2021
With animal agriculture one of the leading contributors to climate change and environmental devastation, the Plant Based Treaty is making sure COP26 delegates and visitors have easy access to vegan food in Glasgow, with its free Guide to Glasgow.
The Guide features more than 20 vegan cafes and restaurants in the city, along with vegetarian eateries and shops with vegan options, all clearly colour-coded, with a handy map showing where to find them.
Activists will hand out 15,000 copies of the Guide throughout COP26.
The Guide will also be available at many of the venues listed and can be downloaded from the Plant Based Treaty’s website.
Some of the cafes and restaurants, including Suissi Vegan Kitchen and The Glasvegan, are offering COP26 delegates a discount.
“Animal agriculture is a major contributor to climate change, global warming and environmental devastation,” says Alex Bourke, campaigner for Plant Based Treaty and creator of the renowned vegan guides to cities in the UK and Europe for the past 27 years. “It’s a serious problem. The solution is plant-based food. We want to show COP26 delegates and visitors how easy it is to eat plant-based food. Our free guide shows you where to go and enjoy it.”
ABOUT THE PLANT BASED TREATY
As a companion to the UNFCCC/Paris Agreement, the Plant Based Treaty is a grassroots initiative calling upon national governments to negotiate a landmark international treaty—the first of its kind to put food systems at the heart of combating the climate crisis.
The Treaty aims to halt the widespread degradation of critical ecosystems caused by animal agriculture, to promote a shift to more healthy, sustainable plant-based diets and to actively reverse damage done to planetary functions, ecosystem services and biodiversity.
