ANIMAL AGRICULTURE TRUTHS

Climate change is a scientific fact and it’s a proven fact that farm animals contribute more greenhouse gases to the atmosphere than all cars, planes, trains, buses and ships.

Here are some animal agriculture truths:

  • While 13% of global greenhouse gas emissions are caused by transport (including road, rail, air and marine), a whopping 51% are from livestock and their byproducts.
  • The meat and dairy industries use 1/3 of earth’s fresh water.
  • 1-2 acres of rainforest are cleared every second.
  • 91% of Amazon destruction is caused by animal agriculture.
  • Every minute, 7 million pounds of excrement are produced by animals raised for food in the US.
  • Livestock covers 45% of the earth’s TOTAL land.
  • To feed one person for one year, a meat eater needs 18 times as much land as a vegan person.
  • 5 acres of land can be used to make 37 000 pounds of plant-based food or just 375 pounds of meat.
  • For every 1 pound of fish caught, 5 pounds of unintended marine species are caught and discarded as by-kill.
  • A plant-based diet (aka vegan) cuts your carbon footprint by 50%.
