CHOOSE TO HELP PROTECT THE HUNGRY

The environmental impact of the meat and dairy industry also has consequences on food availability. Quite simply, we do not have enough land to feed everyone in the world on an animal-based diet. At a time when the world’s population is increasing and viable agricultural lands are diminishing it seems obvious that industrial animal farming is unsustainable and unjustifiable. This summer the MPs on the UK Parliament’s International Development Committee concluded that the UK population must be encouraged to eat less meat “over time” in an effort to make the global food supply more sustainable. But you can choose to help protect the planet right now by living a life free from animal products.
