The answer is by going vegetarian!  By going vegetarian we can help prevent global warming, rainforest destruction, and pollution while saving water!!

Just a few facts:

  • Nearly 80% of land deforested in the Amazon is now used as cattle pastures
  • Switching to a diet free of meat, dairy and eggs saves 50% more carbon emissions than driving a Prius
  • To produce one pound of animal protein versus one pound of soy protein it takes about 12 times as much land, 13 times as much fossil fuels and 15 times as much water!
  • In the US nearly 70% of the grain grown is fed to farmed animals, if the world converted to a vegetarian lifestyle we could end the world hunger epidemic!
  • Raising animals for food produces more greenhouse gas emissions than all of the cars, planes,and other forms of transportation combined!
