3 Sustainability Benefits of a Plant Based Diet

3 Sustainability Benefits of a Plant Based Diet

Did you know that a plant based diet can leave a long-lasting, positive impact on the environment? The environmental benefits associated with a plant based diet are just as important as the health benefits.

Check out the 3 most popular reasons why people are switching to a plant based diet for the environment.

  1. Decreases Greenhouse Gas Emissions. Plant based diets are associated with the greatest reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. These emissions are known for trapping and holding heat, which contributes to global warming. Meat and dairy cause twice as many greenhouse gas emissions as plant based foods, according to research. We can help protect the planet by increasing our consumption of plant based foods, while decreasing our intake of animal products.
  2. Saves Water. Plant based foods are more water efficient than animal foods. The process of growing plant based foods requires less water compared to meat and dairy production. By using less water for animal agriculture, there is an increase in water supply for people and lands to thrive. Plant based OWYN has already saved billions of gallons of water compared to dairy protein!
  3. Preserve Land. We can increase our global food supply without expanding croplands by increasing plant food consumption. It takes less land to grow plant based foods than it does to produce meat and dairy. Plants make more food with less land while animals produce less food with more land. More food from less land is critical because the need for fewer resources helps to feed the increasing population.

Reducing meat and dairy consumption, even by a little, can have big impacts on the environment. Plant based protein can easily replace animal products. Try adding legumes, beans, nuts, seeds, and OWYN Plant Based Protein Shakes into your daily meals.
