Meat And Plastic Sales Are Down, New Survey Says

Meat And Plastic Sales Are Down, New Survey Says!

Amid growing concern for the environment, a new survey finds that consumers are spending less on meat and plastic bottles drinks in an effort to reduce waste, a global survey showed on Tuesday.

About a third of people surveyed in 24 countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia are alarmed about the environment, with half of those – or 16% of the global total – taking active steps to reduce their imprint.

“We’re already seeing small reductions in spending on meat, bottled drinks and categories such as beauty wipes,” data analytics firm Kantar said in a report on the survey.

“As markets get wealthier, the focus on issues of environmentalism and plastics increases. In the future, we could expect to see the share of ‘eco active’ shoppers rising in countries that experience growing gross domestic product.”

65,000 people were polled in and the results show that people in western Europe were most likely to try to make the changes necessary to help reduce their carbon footprint. In Aid and Latin America, the study showed most consumers have little interest int the issue.

The only country that did stand out was Chile, where 37% of those surveyed said that are actively taking trying to make a change.

In Europe, Austria, and Germany were next with the UK trailing behind.

“Our study shows there is high demand for eco-friendly products that are competitively priced and readily available.”

The U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said last month that global meat consumption must fall to curb global warming and that plant-based foods could contribute to reducing emissions of carbon dioxide.

There has been an explosion of companies offering alternatives to meat, such as California-based Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, while food giants like Nestle are also launching plant-based burgers.

Kantar said 48% of shoppers want consumer goods companies to do more to cut plastic waste.
