  • Eating a plant-based diet significantly reduces your carbon footprint. Roughly, a vegetarian diet produces half as much greenhouse gases as a typical American omnivore diet. 
  • A recent study shows that vegetarians live 20% longer than their meat-eating counterparts.
  • Non-meat protein sources are delicious too!
  • Its easy to grow your own veggies and/or buy local in-season veggies, which reduces your carbon footprint even further.
  • You no longer have to worry about the horrors of factory farming and living conditions for animals.
