Why Meatless Monday?
Answer: How much time do you have? Here are a few facts and figures to motivate you to take the Meatless Monday Pledge.

  1. Up to 2,500 gallons of water go into a single pound of beef.
  2. Factory farming is inhumane. Stop supporting suffering.
  3. Show your global solidarity and be part of the solution.
  4. Add years to your life and life to your years.

Save the earth – Up to 2500 gallons of water are needed to produce a single pound of beef. In contrast, approximately 39 gallons of water are needed to produce a pound of vegetables. An 8 minute shower uses over 17 gallons of water. That means skipping a pound of meat once a week saves the equivalent of up to 7500 showers worth of water. It also reduces greenhouse gasses and fuel dependence.

Save yourself – Reduce Heart Disease and Stroke, limit your cancer risk, fight diabetes, curb obesity, live longer and improve the nutritional quality of your diet.
