Happy Earth Day! Eating meat isn’t green

Happy Earth Day!! 

  • 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 US, 38 millions cows are raised for food each year. Their burps and farts comprise 20 percent of all US methane-gas emissions.
  • It takes 24,00 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of meat.
  • One of the top sources of water pollution is the raising of animals for food.
  • Animals raised for food produce 10 times the poop and pee as humans do, much of which winds up in our water.
  • Every 6 seconds an acre of rainforest is cut down for cattle farming–that is 14,400 acres a day.
  • We have already lost 75% of our topsoil in the US mostly because of raising animals for food; it takes 500 years to create 1 inch of topsoil!
