We all need nutritious food and a healthy planet, but intensive meat and dairy production is putting this at risk.
Emissions from crops that feed livestock account for approximately 28% of all crop production emissions in Canada.  Globally, over 14% of greenhouse gas emissions are only coming from livestock supply chains.  The main reason for these emissions is the livestock industry’s reliance on harmful factory farming practices — which are tearing down our forests, polluting our water, warming the planet and harming our health. 
The environmental impacts of intensive meat and dairy production are growing annually. The livestock industry already contributes more to climate change than road, rail, air, and marine transportation combined. 
The responsibility to fight climate change lies first on governments and corporations - not on individuals. However, small changes to consumption habits can have a significant impact by maintaining pressure on governments and corporations profiting from the meat and dairy industry.
It’s possible to savour good food and reaffirm what we care about - our families, our communities, our environment - with every bite. We just need to replace our reliance on industrial meat with greater connection to our food and the people who produce it.
