What’s the real impact of eating meat?
No matter whether you’ve been a vegan a long time or are starting to have an interest in a plant-based diet, the fact is that meat produces a lot of waste. There is a high environmental cost with commercially farmed meat.
So, how much do vegans save? The estimated impact of eating meat every day costs 1 animal life, 1,100 gallons of water, 40 pounds of grain, 30 sq ft of forest, and 20 lbs CO2. Every day you’re a vegan saves the equivalent.
