Conscientious Brits have decided to ditch traditional Christmas fare for more environmentally and animal-friendly options.
According to a research commissioned by Whole Foods Market, more than 40% of people in Britain plan to forgo their traditional turkey dinner ritual and opt for other alternatives.
Of them, at least 10% admitted that they would enjoy a completely vegetarian Christmas Day.
Research data shows that people have chosen to ditch a turkey dinner for varied reasons. 23% have decided to switch for the environment, while 22% have health as their driving factor and 23% want to go plant-based in solidarity with the birds.
The data also highlighted that more than a quarter of the people surveyed admitted that they would be hosting either vegetarian, gluten-free or vegan guests, and therefore their festive fare would heavily depend on meat-less and dairy -free options.
The research also gathered data on the percentage of people intending to abstain from alcohol. Around 49% have admitted they would reduce their alcohol intake this Christmas and 23% have decided they would go completely alcohol free
Additionally, more than a third of the people that answered the questions intend to use eco-friendly practices to cut the amount of waste generated.
People , who intend to ditch animal products this festive season are going to have a plethora of choices as major food retailers and supermarkets have unveiled exclusive vegan Christmas delicacies to lure their customers.
Marks and Spencer has vegan no pigs in blankets, a plant-based root vegetable Tarte Tatin entrée, a vegan sweet potato sandwich with chestnut and cranberry roast and dark chocolate and cherry dessert on its Christmas menu.
