collage-earth-day-infographics-factI know, some of your friends don’t want to hear it– but knowledge is power and a fact is a fact. When you share one that is common knowledge (albeit often ignored), you’re putting it out there and believe me, it will resonate! One of my personal faves: According to the United Nations, raising animals for food generates more greenhouse-gas emissions than all the cars, planes, ships, trucks, and trains in the world COMBINED. A staggering 51 percent or more of global greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture, according to a report published by the Worldwatch Institute.

Most products that are cruelty-free use natural and organic ingredients. Plus, buying products that aren’t tested on animals means you’re not supporting a multi-billion dollar industry that generates harmful toxins and wastes a scary amount of energy and resources on ineffective and unreliable experiments.

go-vegan
We’ve said it before but one more time for the cheap seats in the back: MEAT’S NOT GREEN! Adopting a vegan diet is the easiest and most significant way to reduce your carbon footprint, hands down. As if saving more than a hundred animals a year wasn’t reason enough, right?

Be the change,
