Even though #veganism is an ethical position, the advantages for the #environment are compelling.
I first became #vegan because of the #environmental aspects and only after that I got to know the ethical reasons in detail.

How do you want to reduce the amount of human population?
I don't think that's a viable solution.
I think raising the standards of living and raising education helps with this problem.
But why not avoid feeding of good food to animals as well ;)
A much simple solution would be for the governments to use soft propaganda through the media, the same way they do with all other topics. If the population is repeatedly told that, for instance, 1 kid is more than enough, through various news articles, etc over the months they'll take it as truth. Another solution is to give social benefit only for the first child - 1/2
IMHO soft propaganda is way better than other solutions like criminalizing the parents who have many children. Plus, for once it'd be used for a good purpose that actually serves everybody, regardless of species. I don't see that as unethical. It's not the same as the propaganda that depicts protesters/refugees/vegans/feminists/leftists/etc as lesser individuals or flat out terrorists, as is currently the case in France for instance.
@VPG Can someone please send that milk v milk chart to all the baristas who've been taken in by Oatly's marketing bs and stopped offering soy as an option?
@VPG You talk like "environmentally friendly" and "ethical" are usually opposites, while one is a subset of the other.
