Regenesis: A ‘world-changing book’
Posted on September 11, 2022
If you care about our planet and all the Earthlings we share it with, then you should read this wonderful book.
Monbiot, a vegan, believes that animal farming is unsustainable, and industrial meat and dairy could collapse remarkably rapidly. (At May Safely Graze we believe that it could be as early as 2025). There is a complexity of reasons for this, including the rise of alternative proteins and fats made from plants, fungi, and genetically modified bacteria.
