Green Veggies Way

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now. ~Chinese Proverb

Its volunteering based choice for "Green Plates" i.e to go for veggie, but important and essential for continued survival of life on the planet or even the life of planet itself. Some good facts to consider in order to make your wish and will even more strong in case if you have been thinking of going this way since long..


Lessen global warming

  • The single most important step an individual can take to reduce global warming [faster than any other means] is to adopt a vegetarian diet.Global warming poses one of the most serious threats to the global environment ever faced in human history. 
  • As per UN reports raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined.

Avoid excessive CO2 production

  • According to the UN Report, when emissions from land use and land use change are included, the livestock sector accounts for 9 per cent of CO2 deriving from human-related activities, but produces a much larger share of even more harmful greenhouse gases.3

Reduce methane/nitrous oxide production

Animal farms are responsible for 37% of the total methane (23 times as warming as CO2) generated by human activity. With methane emissions causing nearly half of the planet’s human-induced warming, methane reduction must be a priority.


Save large amounts of water

  • Estimates of the water required to produce a kilo of beef vary, from 13,000 liters up to 100,000 liters. now can understand better..

Avoid further pollution of our rivers/oceans

  • Pollution of our waterways is caused by animal waste, antibiotics and hormones entering the water cycle alongside chemicals from tanneries, fertilizers, and the pesticides used to spray feed crops.

Help ensure environmental sustainability

  • There were approximately 6.5 billion people living on earth in 2005, and as the world’s population continues to grow, our requirement for food will also increase. Worldwide food production requires 30% of the total soil available, 20% of fossil fuel energy and a major part of the fresh water flow. Raising cattle is one of the most damaging.

Reduce destruction of topsoil & tropical rainforest

  • Thirty percent of the earth’s entire land surface—a massive 70% of all agricultural land—is used for rearing farmed animals. Much of this is grazing land that otherwise would host natural habitats such as valuable rainforests. And, of the entire world’s land suitable for growing crops that would otherwise directly feed humans, a third of it is used to produce feed for farmed animals.
Degraded earth and planet


Reduce destruction of wildlife habitats & endangered species

  • The livestock industry is responsible for widespread deforestation and cultivation of vast tracks of land. Wide-spread cultivation of the land ruins animals’ natural habitat and forces millions of them to be evicted from their homes each year, causing long-term harm to our wildlife.
