Due to the quarantine, many people developed an interest in cooking and and try different recipes. Thinking about it, in April 2020, Greenpeace Brasil launched “Quarentena Sem Carne” (Quarantine Without Meat, translated literally), a free vegetarian recipe book to helps people face isolation in a healthy way and at the same time reflect on the impact of meat consumption for the environment.

According to the publication, “agriculture is today one of the main causes of deforestation in the world and responsible for approximately 60% of the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change” and, for this reason, Greenpeace encourages the drastic reduction on consumption of meat and meat products.

Vegan and vegetable recipes are suggested by chefs, nutritionists and influencers who advocate good nutrition as a way to help deal with anxiety, stay in shape, entertain children and discover new flavors and ingredients during the time at home.
