The Plant-based Cities Movement; Transitioning One City at a Time?
« The Plant-based Cities Movement (PBCM) is a Canadian initiative working to ensure that municipalities are at the forefront of the fight to prevent further climate breakdown. Many are already working toward decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and the PBCM is cajoling many more to get onside.
The time has come to transition to a sustainable plant-based food system.
