Animal agriculture water consumption ranges from 34-76 trillion gallons annually and is responsible for 20%-33% of all fresh water consumption in the world today. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction. A farm with 2,500 dairy cows produces the same amount of waste as a city of 411,000 people. Today, livestock covers 45% of the earth’s total land.
The best and most effective way to reduce your carbon footprint is to eat a plant-based diet. Every effort counts, even if you’re just starting out with doing meatless Mondays.

Livestock production also accounts for about 35% of total anthropogenic methane emissions.
