If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Every 6 seconds, an acre of the rainforest is cut down for cattle farming.
That is 14,400 acres a day.
Topsoil is the fertile upper layer of soil that’s needed to grow nutritious vegetation.
We have already lost 75 % of our topsoil in the U.S., mostly because of the raising of animals for food.
It takes 500 years to create 1 inch of new topsoil!
If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and ate vegan foods instead,
it would be like taking more than 500,000 cars off the road.
In the U.S., more than 38 million cows are raised for food each year.
Their burps and farts comprise 20 percent of all U.S. methane-gas emissions.
It takes 2,400 gallons of water to produce1 pound of meat
That's more than 50 bathtubs’ worth of water!
One of the top sources of water pollution is the
raising of animals for food.
Animals raised for food produce
more than 10 times
the poop and pee as humans do,
much of which winds up in our water.
When you eat meat,
the planet suffers.
