We’ve covered the benefits of going vegetarian or vegan many times here on Planetsave, but I don’t think we could cover it too many times. Here’s a wonderful infographic on “veganism and the environment” that someone from the infographic company that made this for Culinary Schools:

    Nice site. Been vegan (well, really close to it) for a year now. I know it is making me healthier, and now I’m glad to find out that I’m making the planet healthier.

  • Hype

    Thanks, completely disagree. Infographics are a clever way to deceive people. They are the visual version of a sound bite. Agriculture was, is and always will be the # 1 polluter/destroyer of the environment. Remember the dust bowl anyone? How about the huge dead zone in the gulf of mexico because of the runoff of fertilizers used in agriculture upstream? Veganism is being sold to you courtesy of the food industry (agribusiness). Dig a little deeper beyond the “infographic” and you wil understand. Veganism is an ideology not a dietary choice.

    • It’s funny, you seem to completely contradict yourself here.

      “Agriculture was, is and always will be the # 1 polluter/destroyer of the environment.”

      Exactly. And a LOT more cropland must be used for a non-vegan or non-vegetarian diet! So, the destruction is amplified many times over. Look into it 😉

    Thanks are in order: This “infographic” (new item now intro’d to my vocab. (& by extension , vocab’s of my students) concisely pulls it together in a way more likely to get / hold attention. The visual, user-friendly format enables those of us already on board to engage uh, the others.
