We hear it all the time: Does going vegan actually make a difference? Let’s take a look at some facts and the answer will become quite clear.
We’ll start with the most obvious: saving animals.
With over 9 billion farmed animals suffering at factory farms, there’s no question that the best step you can take to help end animal cruelty is simply to leave animals off your plate. In fact, going vegan spares the lives of about 30 farmed animals each year. This alone should prove a vegan diet makes a difference in the world, but there’s more.
What you might not know is that by going vegan you also spare the lives of wild animals, including whales, bears, bald eagles, wolves, and wild horses.
Vegans fight for human rights.
From sexual abuse and workers’ rights violations to polluting communities, factory farming hurts people. Exposed to countless workplace hazards and denied breaks, many factory farm workers are undocumented and taken advantage of. Employers often withhold their pay and threaten them with deportation. Ceasing support of this industry by choosing to eat vegan is taking a stand for human rights.
Lastly, going vegan helps protect the planet.
Killing animals is killing our planet. In fact, animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of climate change and deforestation. The meat industry emits more greenhouse gases than all the transportation in the world combined. Additionally, factory farms pollute waterways and destroy air quality, making a vegan diet one of the most effective ways to protect our planet.
Are vegans making a difference in the world? You bet.
