โœŒ๏ธ๐ŸŒHAPPY EARTH DAY๐ŸŒโœŒ๏ธ

Don’t think of yourself as insignificant when it comes to taking care of our planet. We make the choice 3x a day on what we eat…choose the compassionate, cruelty free way and not only save the animals lives & the planet, but improve your health as well! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ Here’s a few statistics to put it all in perspective…

โ€‹Changing your diet from a meat eating diet to a vegan one reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 1.5 tons per year! ๐Ÿ’ The meat, egg, and dairy industry produce 65% of worldwide nitrous oxide emissions. ๐ŸŠ A meat eating diet creates 7x the greenhouse emissions as the diet of vegans. ๐ŸŒ It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 lb of meat VS. 1 lb of wheat using 25 gallons. ๐Ÿ‰ 1 calorie from animal protein requires 11 TIMES as much fossil fuel as one calorie of plant protein. ๐Ÿ A vegan diet requires 300 gallons of water per day VS. a meat eating diet which requires 4,000 gallons per day! ๐Ÿ‘ You’d save more water by not eating 1 lb of meat than you would by not taking a shower for 6 MONTHS. ๐ŸŒฝ Raising animals for food uses 30% of the earth’s land mass…that’s about the same size as Asia! ๐Ÿ‡More than 260 million acres of the U.S. forest have been cleared to create cropland to grow grain to feed farmed animals. ๐Ÿ The equivalent of 7 football fields of land are bulldozed every minute to create more room for farm animals. ๐ŸŽ 70% of grain and cereals grown in U.S. are fed to farm animals. ๐Ÿ‹ It requires 16 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of meat!โ€‹
