As the plant-based economy booms, Måns Ullerstam’s vision of a cleaner, more sustainable environment that is no longer threatened by climate change is beginning to gain credibility and legitimacy. Måns is raising funds on FundedByMe to allow his Kale United to invest directly in and provide other support to startups focused on the vegan community. Investments may go to virtually any player in that ecosystem from the farmers to app developers if they enhance the movement. For Måns, the important impact of a vegan lifestyle is environmental. He acknowledges that not killing animals to eat them tends to extend their lives and that a vegan diet is recognized by many scientists as being more healthy, but his focus is on the environmental benefits--especially climate change. Agriculture produces more carbon than any other sector of the global economy. Reducing consumption of meat and dairy has more potential to mitigate climate change than any other change humans can make he says. Be a hero!
