Veganism vs Vegetarianism: Is a Vegan Diet Only Marginally Better for the Environment?

My response to “Vegan for 30 Days: What They Don’t Tell You” by Katherout. Overall, I think it’s a great video on common positives and negatives of going vegan. But there are a couple of statements made by Katherout that I disagree with: that the “ideal” vegan diet doesn’t include any meat alternatives like mock meat, and that a vegan diet is only marginally better than a vegetarian one in terms of environmental impact.
