9. Environmentally friendly

According to the Worldwatch Institute, the rate at which the world currently consumes animal meat and other animals products is not sustainable.

Currently, 51 percent or more of annual worldwide greenhouse gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture.  And the numbers continue to climb. Thousands of tons of grain and water are used to feed livestock each year. And raising animals requires a lot of workforce and transport.

The food industry lends to the invasion of pollutants into our air and water. This impacts our health day in and day out.

By not eating animal products, and eating locally grown produce, vegans are helping to reduce the environmental toll caused by the food industry.
