"Happy Earth Day 🌎🌿☀️⠀
We are blessed to live on this beautiful planet, yet we are destroying it more and more each day. Rainforests once covered 14% of the lands surface and now it’s a mere 6%. So much of it has been cleared to grow the soy that’s used to feed farm animals. As of 2012, 95% of oats produced in the U.S. and 80% of our corn was fed to them. The average person will consume 7,000 animals in their lifetime and it takes 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of meat. It only takes 25 gallons to grow a pound of wheat. The amount of energy required to produce meat and animal products is 11 times the amount needed for plant products. By going vegan you can save 1,100 gallons of water per day and 198 animals a year! Imagine if we ate plants right from the source instead of feeding it to animals to give us food that we don’t need to consume? We could feed 800 million people and we could even combat climate change by simply changing what we eat. Save lives and the earth! Live compassionately and show mercy + love for every living being.
