Going VEG For 24 Hours Just Might Help Save The Planet!!

While you might think, “Going VEG for 24 hours won’t help anything,” a new article written by Kathy Freston on the Huffington Post shows the true power of the 24-hour-VEG!

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!!!
