Celebrity couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have announced that they have given up meat and have been following a meat-free diet for some time. They stated that they made the decision not only because they care about animals, but also as they want to decrease their impact on the planet.
â€œVirat and I keep talking about how we can make a better impact on the planet, and make it a better place for the future generations,â€ said Anushka, as Virat nodded in agreement and added, â€œOne of the aspect which we have changed is adopting a plant forward diet, which means not consuming any meat at all.â€ Anushka further went on to add, â€œAnd that is not only because we are animal lovers, but also because of the impact meat consumption has on the planet.â€
The couple stated that they have fulfilled their promise by investing in and becoming brand ambassadors for Blue Tribe Food, a pioneer in plant-based meat. â€œItâ€™s a way to satisfy our cravings, without the impact,â€ concluded Virat Kohli.
The video postâ€™s caption read, â€œVirat and I are thrilled to join the #PlanetFriendlyTribe ðŸ’™ðŸŒâ˜˜ï¸ We believe that all of us have the power to protect our planet. And every little choice we make matters. Being total foodies, we love the fact that @bluetribeofficialâ€™s Plant-based Meat lets us relish the experience of eating products that taste like meat, without the impact on the environment. Making it a palate-friendly as well as a planet-friendly alternative.â€
