Why is reducing the amount of meat we eat good for the environment?

Remember, meat and dairy industries are one of the biggest polluting industries the world.

They use the vast majority of farmland available, consume huge amounts of water, and produce more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector.

To help the environment, you can reduce the amount of meat you eat. No need to go vegan all at once to improve your footprint, you can go step by step. For example by going meat-free one day a week, of by signing up to veganuary.
