Reduced Methane

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, which is emitted into the atmosphere as a by-product of animals raised for food production. 1.5 billion cattle raised for meat production emit at least 231 billion pounds of methane each year 


Better Health

Switching to a plant-based diet reduces the risk factors associated with numerous health problems including heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure and obesity.

Reduced Water Pollution

Pollution from animal lots runs into local water sources, increasing risk of disease while increasing energy needed to treat water downstream.

Lower Carbon Footprint

Meats account for nearly 60% of all greenhouse gases from food production. To produce 1kg of wheat, 2.5kg of greenhouse gases are emitted. A single kg of beef, meanwhile, creates 70kg of emissions.
