Earth Day? You can't be an environmentalist and eat animals.
Raising animals for food requires massive amounts of land, food, energy, and water. The byproducts of animal agriculture pollute our air and waterways.
According to scientists at the Smithsonian Institute, seven football fields’ worth of land is bulldozed every minute to create more room for farmed animals and the crops that feed them.
Chickens, pigs, cattle, and other animals raised for food are the primary consumers of water in the U.S.: a single pig consumes 21 gallons of drinking water per day, while a cow on a dairy farm drinks as much as 50 gallons daily.(4,5) It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of cow flesh.
In addition to polluting the environment, factory farming produces the most meat, milk, and eggs as quickly and cheaply as possible and in the smallest amount of space possible, resulting in abusive conditions for animals.
