Plant-Based Diet

Facts:

  • The annual methane output of raisingĀ one cow is the equivalent of driving a car 7,800 miles per year.
  • Livestock is responsible for 18 percent of all anthropogenic (human-caused) greenhouse gas emissions.
  • It takes 75 times more energy to produce meat than corn.
  • Runoff from factory farms and livestock grazing is a major contributor to the pollution of rivers and lakes.
  • Raising animals for food has been linked to deforestation, and poor soil quality.
  • A vegetarian diet requires 17x less land and 14x less water than a dietĀ includingĀ animal protein.

Be a Plant-Based HoW Changer

  • REFUSE
    University of Michigan and Tulane University published a study Implications of Future US Diet Scenarios on Greenhouse Gas Emissions
    Ā proving that even a partially plant-based diet impacts the planet. If you aren’t ready to go 100% vegan, you will still make significant impact by cutting the amount of animal proteins you ingest by 40-50%, which equates to switching approximately 8 meals/week to plant-based.

  • REPLACE
    Adopting a vegan diet is “the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth, not just greenhouse gases, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use, and water use.”
  • REQUEST
    Ask your favorite restaurants to add more plant-based options. They are happy to add them by patron’s request as they are more cost-effective options for the restaurants.
  • RALLY
    Share with friends! andĀ take the #8meals challenge!Ā Host a plant-based potluck dinner to introduce new options to friends. Many new plant-based products that are available make this transition much easier and more interesting.Ā 
  • RETHINK
    Some believe that switching to a pescatarian (fish only) diet is helpful, but fishing nets are the leading contributor of plastic pollution in our oceans. A plant-based diet is the most eco-friendly change you can make.

“If we really care about the world our children and grandchildren will inherit, we do need to shift toward a vegan diet. And the good news is that it’s not just our planet that will be more healthy, but we will be more healthy as well.”

Dr. Walter Willett
