Helping to heal the environment around us and within us.
Reduce the Impacts of Climate Change
Research finds that food production is responsible for up to 30 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions, with animal products accounting for about three quarters of these effects. Vegan and vegetarian diets are associated with the greatest reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions.
Let the Greens be Green
Overgrazing by livestock has damaging effects to our green grasslands, including the prevention of biomass replacement and hindering plant regrowth and can initiate processes such as desertification, salinization, soil compaction, soil water-logging and soil erosion. Colorful biodiverse gardens help maintain a properly balanced ecosystem by nurturing pollinators, birds and other wildlife.
The creation and disposal of manure has devastating effects on the air, water and soil. Manure which contains antibiotics, heavy metals and artificial growth hormones contaminates waterways and are applied to croplands. A diet devoid of animal products and rich in organic fruits, vegetables and grains decreases the amount of toxins entering the air, water and soil.
Healing Your Gut
High-fiber foods, found only in plants, help promote healthful and stable gut bacteria. Following a vegan diet promotes a diverse microbiome which is definitive of a healthy microbiome.
Increased Energy Levels
A plant-based diet, which is low in saturated fat and free of cholesterol, helps improve blood viscosity, or thickness. This helps more oxygen reach the muscles, which improves energy and athletic performance.
Neutralize Free Radicals
Eating a plant-based diet means eating more antioxidants. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals that can lead to muscle fatigue, reduced body performance, and impaired recovery.
