A massive percent of Generation Z choose to go meat-free more often

We've seen and heard this a lot lately.

I'd say a good 50 percent of my friends are now vegetarian or vegan, however more and more are expressing their desire to eat less meat on a day to day basis.

One friend even expressed her views on eating out, saying that five years ago she would have had to trek around Dublin to find a good vegan restaurant - or even a restaurant with just one or two vegan options on the menu. But now, there's a cafe or eatery catering to vegans on nearly every corner of the city centre.

Not totally go veg... but go in that direction. And it turns out that a lot of people feel the same way around the world.

According to new research by Aramark, 79 percent of Generation Z  - mid-1990s to the early 2000s - are eager to go meatless at least once or twice a week.

To further that, around 65 percent want to focus on a more plant-based diet, while 60 percent want to reduce their meat intake altogether.

For those who want to reduce their meat intake, the reason is largely to do with their health.

What do you think? Are you more likely to go meatless one or two times a week compared to going totally vegan or vegetarian?
