A new survey from Modular Classrooms has found that more than half of the UK population would change their diet to help the environment.
Modular Classrooms offer sustainable building solutions for growing schools and colleges, with their eco-friendly and energy efficient buildings.
The survey also looked at what age parents think children should learn about the environment. They found that 78 per cent of parents believe children should start learning about sustainability and the environment from age three.
They found that 60 per cent of parents factor in a school’s environmental education, including educating children about meat consumption, when choosing a school for their children.
In efforts to help reduce the effects of climate change, 57 per cent of respondents said that they would significantly change their lifestyles and reduce their meat consumption.
Mark Brown, from Modular Classrooms, said: “It’s encouraging to see that so many people are willing to make changes to their lives to safeguard not only their future but the future of their children.”
The future of the environment has been at the forefront of the news recently, with children and teenagers taking action by protesting against the lack of measures being taken to protect their futures.
