DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that…
- for each hamburger passed up, as much water is saved as taking 40 showers with a low-flow nozzle. In other words, save massive amounts of water - 3000 to 5000 gallons (about 11,350-19,000 litres) of water for every pound of beef you avoid;
- your average car produces 3 kg/day of CO2. To get enough land out of a rainforest to produce beef it has been calculated that for 1 hamburger are emitted 75 kg of CO2. Eating 1lb (about 0.45 Kg) of hamburger does the same damage as driving your car for over 3 weeks.
- if each American reduced his or her meat consumption by only 5%, roughly equivalent to eating one less dish of meat each weak, 7.5 million tons of grain would be saved, enough to feed 25 million people-roughly the number estimated to go hungry in the United States each day.
