Want to save the rain forest? Going vegan is the best way to help.
According to Greenpeace, more than 2.9 million acres of the Amazon rain forest in Brazil were destroyed in the 2004-05 crop season in order to grow crops used to feed chickens and other animals on factory farms.
One of the main crops grown in the rain forest is soy—in fact, much of the enormous amount of soy that is needed to feed the world’s farmed animals now comes from the rain forest. (Note: The soy that is used in veggie burgers, tofu, and soy milk in the U.S. is almost exclusively grown domestically, not in the Amazon.)
If we simply ate soy and other plant foods ourselves instead of feeding them to farmed animals, we wouldn’t need to raise nearly as many crops, and we could eliminate stop decimating the rain forest. Sounds pretty simple, right?
Thanks for helping save the Earth!
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
