Wednesday, March 20, is International Meatout Day! It’s a day when vegans and vegetarians alike are encouraged to remember just why it’s so important to cut animal products from your diet—not only do you help animals, you also help the planet and your own health!
This trifecta of reasons should help show you exactly why you should cut out meat every day:
These numbers are HUGE, and that’s exactly why every person who leaves meat off his or her plate makes a difference—at EVERY MEAL!
For the Planet
We’re using up all our resources! Chickens, pigs, cows, and other animals raised for food are the primary consumers of water in the U.S. Raising animals for food also pollutes our water and air.
For Your Health
Eating red meat raises your cholesterol, which in turn makes you more susceptible to the number one cause of death in the U.S. today. Cholesterol is found ONLY in animal products.
So what do you think? Makes the choice pretty simple, right?
