There are many reasons to become a vegan or a vegetarian. One of the popular reasons is because it’s better for the environment… but is it really? Our resident vegetarian Anthony Carboni did some digging to find the answer.
One-third of our greenhouse gas emissions come from agriculture
“The global food system, from fertilizer manufacture to food storage and packaging, is responsible for up to one-third of all human-caused greenhouse-gas emissions, according to the latest figures from the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), a partnership of 15 research centres around the world.”
Eat Less Meat and Dairy, Save the World
“Eat less dairy and meat, save the world. It’s the vegan’s ultimate dream slogan, and Swedish scientists from the Chalmers University of Technology just might make it a reality.”
Vegetarian or omnivore: The environmental implications of diet
“The argument that a vegetarian diet is more planet-friendly than a carnivorous one is straightforward: If we feed plants to animals, and then eat the animals, we use more resources and produce more greenhouse gases than if we simply eat the plants.”
Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator
“Did you ever wonder what reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 1 million metric tons means in everyday terms?”
What You Eat Matters
“Americans’ appetite for meat and dairy — billions of pounds a year from billions of animals — takes a toll on our health, the environment, climate and animal welfare.”
“Environmental vegetarianism is the practice of vegetarianism or veganism based on the indications that animal production, particularly by intensive agriculture, is environmentally unsustainable.”
Vegetarianism and the Environment
“Along with the current trend of eating ‘organic’ and ‘local’ foods, one of the hot topics that has sparked debate among scholars and bloggers alike is the question of whether or not being a vegetarian affects the environment.”

Cartoons for Children’s Rights is a UNICEF broadcast initiative that aims to inform people around the world about children’s rights. So far, the effort has forged partnerships with many well-known animation studios that have developed more than 80 half-minute public service announcements (PSAs).
Each PSA illustrates a right described in the global rights treaty, such as ‘Freedom from Child Labour’ or ‘Protection from Neglect’. All the spots are non-verbal, in order to get the rights message across to everyone, regardless of language.
