Where the environment is concerned, eating meat is like driving a 16-wheeler and leaving the engine running all the time. Eating a vegetarian diet is like riding a motorbike, and eating a vegan diet is like riding a bicycle.
the average vegan uses about one-sixth of an acre of land to satisfy his or her food requirements for an entire year; the average vegetarian requires about three times as much land; and the average meat-eater requires about 20 times as much land.
It takes about four times as much water to feed a vegetarian as it does to feed a vegan and 14 times as much water to feed a meat-eater.
