In the piece, she shares:
“If everyone went vegetarian just for one day, the U.S. would save:
● 100 billion gallons of water, enough to supply all the homes in New England for almost 4 months;
● 1.5 billion pounds of crops otherwise fed to livestock, enough to feed the state of New Mexico for more than a year;
● 70 million gallons of gas — enough to fuel all the cars of Canada and Mexico combined with plenty to spare;
● 3 million acres of land, an area more than twice the size of Delaware;
● 33 tons of antibiotics.”
And that’s just the beginning!! We’d also save 1.2 tons of CO2, 3 million tons of soil erosion, 4.5 million tons of animal excrement and 7 tons of ammonia emissions. Oh and a whole lot of cruelty!!!
So if you don’t already, try going VEG one day a week and help clean this planet up!!!
