As world leaders unite in Glasgow for COP26 to discuss the future of the planet, Viva!, the UK’s leading vegan campaigning charity, are raising awareness of the devastating impact animal agriculture is having on the environment. Going vegan is the SINGLE biggest action individuals can take to reduce their impact on the natural world. Carbon emissions cannot be realistically reduced without a national and global reduction in the consumption of animal products.
This week, Viva! are hitting the streets to show the people of Britain just how super delicious vegan burgers are – and how they can save the planet by eating them! Viva! are embarking on a mini-city tour of Britain giving away hundreds of FREE delicious vegan burgers with all the trimmings and encouraging the public to try vegan – all from their spectacular vegan burger van! Taste & Glory, a leading meat-alternative brand, have kindly provided their seriously epic and superior-tasting burgers for the tour.
Viva!’s environment campaign #VeganNow, highlights the devastating impact animal agriculture is having on our planet and the climate crisis. Animal agriculture is the leading driver of wildlife loss and releases more greenhouse gases than the entire world’s transport sector combined.
Going vegan is the SINGLE biggest action an individual can take to combat climate change – switching beef for beans can literally save our planet.
During the tour, the Viva! team will be on hand to talk about how to make simple vegans swaps, the campaign to go Vegan Now and Viva!’s super-easy one week vegan meal plan – V7.

Speaking about the tour, Will Sorflaten Viva! Senior Campaigner said:
“We’re hitting the road during COP26 to show the people of Britain just how tasty and simple it is to make the world better place – just by eating vegan!
“There has never been a more important time to talk about animal agriculture and the devastating impact it is having on our planet. Going vegan is the SINGLE biggest action an individual can take to combat the climate crisis. We hope to inspire world leaders and the public to change the way they view diet and the climate crisis. COP26 is a unique opportunity to speak about these critical issues and tell the world to go vegan, now!
“All major supermarkets have an incredible range of vegan food now, there’s never been a better time – so go on, give it a go!“
