GO VEG, SAVE THE WORLD!
MEAT IS NOT GREEN.

"[The meat industry is] one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global." The United Nations

"If anyone wants to save the planet, all they have to do is just stop eating meat. That's the single most important thing you can do." Sir Paul McCartney

CLIMATE CHANGE:
A 2006 U.N. report found that the meat industry is responsible for more greenhouse-gas emissions than all the cars, trucks, planes, and ships in the world combined

POLLUTION:
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the runoff from Factory Farms pollutes our rivers and lakes more than ALL other industry sources combined

 Animals bred for food in the U.S. produce 130 times more waste than the human population. 

LAND USAGE:
More than 260 million acres of U.S. forest have been cleared fro grazing and for growing grain to feed farmed animals. More than 90% of the Amazon rain forest land cleared is used for meat production.  

WATER USAGE:
1/2 of all the water used in the U.S. goes to livestock production. A meat eater uses  more than 4,000 gallons of water a day, while a non-meat eater uses only 300 gallons.

ENERGY USE:
The meat industry uses more than 1/3 of all the fossil fuels consumed in the U.S.

OCEANS:
Commercial fishing nets often scrape the ocean floor clear of all life, destroy coral reefs, and "bycatch" other marine animals such as sea turtles, sea lions, dolphins, porpoises, and birds.

ANIMALS:
Chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows and fish are intelligent, social animals who feel pain and experience emotions just as humans, cats and dogs do. Billions of animals are brutally treated, mutilated and killed by the U.S. meat industry every year.
