7 billion people live on planet Earth. We rear 70 billion farm animals to feed us. That’s us well and truly outnumbered!
Do we really need all these farm animals?
The truth is that we don’t. We ‘grow’ enough food to feed 12-15 billion people. However, 1 billion people are starving each day. How is this possible?
It‘s possible because 50% of the grain and vegetables we grow is used to feed farm animals, not people.
There’s more. The 7 billion people on the planet drink 5.2 billion gallons of water each day and eat 21 billion IIbs of food.
The 1.5 billion cows alone drink 45 billion gallons of water each day and consume 135 billion IIbs of food!
It takes… wait for it… 2,500 gallons of water to produce a 1Ib beef burger!
When it comes to greenhouse gases we’ve been led to believe that fossil fuels are to blame. The truth is that all transport; cars, trains, buses, trucks and planes put together are to blame for 13% of greenhouse gases. Animal agriculture is responsible for 51%! So, you can see why something needs to be done to improve our prospects for the future.
Did you know...?
We’re doing our bit.
We’re doing whatever we can to try and make our future more sustainable. We realise we alone can’t change the world, but if we can change your mind about what you eat, then maybe you could do your bit too, to make the future brighter.
