Changing your diet counters climate change. This is because food production accounts for 26% of global greenhouse gas emissions. While we need food and can’t really stop producing it, there are a few things we can change about how we do it!. Launched in 2021, Only Earth, is offering a vegan-plant based beverage with an objective to save our Only Planet. “With plant-based nutrition, one can get a meal with a much lower carbon footprint without compromising on nutrition”, says its founder Kunal Mehta, who shifted to veganism two years ago and is an athlete in making. The message is simple: changing your diet helps to fight climate change one step at a time.
“Our vision is to save the only planet we have. We believe in giving an option to our audience for a greener choice so we can save our planet! We humans have evolved in every aspect of life, be it exploring outer space, living longer or travelling at supersonic speeds. But our food system is still extremely inefficient and unsustainable as a majority of us are still consuming the required nutrients from secondary sources through meat & dairy. One of the key ways to save our planet is to change the way we eat.”, adds Mehta.
This becomes clear when we see that we dedicate 83% of our farmland to livestock which provides only 18% of our calories. This is not sustainable and just doesn’t make sense. We need to find more efficient and cruelty-free ways of meeting the global population’s food requirements. You can start combating climate change by reducing your dependence on dairy.
We at Only Earth are committed to taking animals out of the food equation and start combating climate change by reducing dependency on dairy so that it can be good for you and good for the environment too! With these beverages, we promise the goodness of a planet-friendly, plant-based drink.
Only Earth has launched Oat and Coconut variants of the beverage and will be soon coming out with the almond variant.
Oats Variant; rich and creamy oats beverage packed with the best of nature, free from gluten, lactose and nuts. A drink that is packed with flavour and what’s best for your body – proteins, fibre, calcium, potassium, iron, and vitamins A and D.
Coconut; the global demand for plant-based milk has been fueled by the growth of natural food products and customer preference for a vegan diet.
Among the diverse alternatives available in plant-based products – coconut milk, made from the white flesh of a coconut, has gained popularity in the healthcare community and as an alternative to dairy milk. Often praised for its health benefits, coconut milk is a crowd-pleaser. Filled with proteins, fats (the good kind), carbs, potassium, magnesium, calcium and much more in every swig of creamy delight.
