How to save the planet: Go vegan!
April 21, 2017 Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

In honor of Earth Day, here are 5 things you can do to save the planet.

Hint: they all add up to just one thing. Go vegan!

When I feel helpless about my inability to affect the course of government policies or corporate agendas, I take comfort in my ability to take personal action in every bite of food I eat.

Animal agriculture creates 18% of our greenhouse gas emissions, which is more than what all the cars and trucks on the road emit.

Eating plant foods has such a massive impact in shifting our trajectory, that it was a no brainer to me 9 years ago, and I’ve never once looked back with even a microgram of regret.

How to save the planet: 5 steps to go vegan

1. Replace hamburgers with veggie burgers!

Cows produce 150 billion gallons of methane per day. One pound of beef requires 2500 gallons of water.

2. Replace chicken with chickpeas!

There are 9 billion chickens producing 1/4-1 pound of waste every single day.

3. Replace fish with flaxseeds!

90-100 million tons of fish are taken from the ocean every year, and for each pound of fish there is up to 5 pounds of by-catch – including 650,000 whales, dolphins and seals and 40-50 million sharks. We could see fishless oceans by 2048. I will be 66 years old.

4. Replace eggs with flax or chia eggs!

It takes 477 gallons of water to produce just 1 pound of eggs.

5. Replace dairy with almond milk! and coconut yogurt! and all non-dairy options!

One pound of cheese requires 900 gallons of water. One gallon of milk requires 1000 gallons of water.
