- Animal agriculture uses a whopping 56 percent of water in the United States. In fact, just one hamburger requires 660 gallons of water to produce—the equivalent of two months’ worth of showers.
- Because animals are so densely packed on today's industrial farms, they produce more manure than can be absorbed by the land as fertilizer. The runoff from these facilities grossly contaminates rivers and groundwater.
- Animal agriculture is culpable for nearly 91 percent of Amazon destruction, according to The World Bank.
- Raising animals for food produces more greenhouse gas emissions than all the cars, planes, and other forms of transportation combined.
