Is veganism really a privileged option?

We often come across the perception that veganism is a privilege. Even within the most progressive and left-wing circles, this movement is frequently criticized, and branded as alienated from the needs and resources of the lower classes.

Green mortgages and an ambitious plan to renovate homes and improve their energy efficiency. A priori, they are two separate processes. The first is the business that the bank is testing with its initial offers in this regard. The second is one of the commitments that the Government has included in the Recovery and Resilience Plan to obtain European funds. However, in practice, both phenomena are condemned to converge in time. As more homes meet energy efficiency standards, banks will expand a business that is still in its infancy. ...
