Planet Benefits


Some benefits for our planet from vegetarianism are

  • Our staggering topsoil loss is directly associated with livestock grazing
  • Much deforestation are forests converted into land for grazing livestock or growing their food
  • Much of the water consumed in the U.S. irrigates land growing feed and fodder for livestock depleting our water resources
  • Feeding large amounts of grain to animals to produce small amounts of meat is an inefficient waste of our limited resources
  • Grazing has contributed to the demise of threatened and endangered plant and animal species - Extinction is forever
  • The meat-based diet adds greatly to global warming by increasing CO2 emissions
  • Factory farms are producing run-offs that are polluting our rivers and streams and more...
