Are Non-Vegan Diets Environmentally Sustainable?

Recommended Posts

Animal-based foods are generally more resource-intensive and environmentally impactful to produce than plant-based foods.

Beef production requires 20 times more land and emits 20 times more greenhouse gas emissions per unit of edible protein than common plant-based protein sources such as beans, peas and lentils. Chicken and pork are more resource-efficient than beef, but still require three times more land and emit three times more greenhouse gas emissions than beans. When it comes to resource use and environmental impacts, the type of food eaten matters as much, if not more, than how that food is produced.
