Why are plant-based products important?

As America faces a number of environmental imperatives, including a waste management crisis, growing greenhouse gas emissions, declining soil health, and diminishing water quality, increasing the adoption of renewable, plant-based products can help address these challenges.

The plant-based products industry brings quality, green jobs to small communities and contributes to quality of life improvements—both economically and environmentally. Learn more about the economic impact.

Further, the global appetite for environmentally responsible consumer goods is increasing. Expanding the plant-based products industry can help meet that demand while driving a circular economy that encourages the use of renewable resources and keeps those resources in use longer. Plant-based products offer more sustainable alternatives to traditional products and materials derived from fossil-fuels.
