Every Moment Counts

Animal agriculture, most particularly factory farming, is a primary source of many of the gravest problems facing our planet including but not limited to climate change, species extinction, human hunger, animal cruelty, clean water depletion, soil depletion, oceanic dead zones, fisheries depletion, deforestation, antibiotics resistance, obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.

If that wasn’t bad enough, animal agriculture is anticipated to more than double by 2050, predominantly via the growth of industrialized farming techniques.

 

50by40.org seeks to de-silo the movements whose mission is advanced through a reduction in industrial animal agriculture through increased collaboration toward a common goal:

If everyone ate meatless for just one day, the USA would save:

0 gallons
Water. Enough to supply all the homes in New England for almost 4 months
0 lbs
Crops for livestock. Enough to feed New Mexico for about a year
0 gallons
Gas. Enough to fuel all the cars of Canada and Mexico combined
0 acres
Land not bulldozed for livestock and their feed

Now imagine if that one day was magnified to half the year!

Statistics were calculated from reports by Noam Mohr, a physicist with the New York University Polytechnic Institute.
