Meat Consumption Declines

Fruits and vegetables from a farmers market. c...

This is such great news to start off the New Year!!

According to a recent Daily Livestock Report, 2010 marked the fourth year in a row that meat consumption declined in the United States and the fifth decline within a six-year period. Now, a new report shows this trend is expected to continue in 2012. Although the biggest drop is expected for beef, poultry and pork consumption are also expected to decline dramatically. All of this despite the fact that the US population continues to grow.

And why not? It makes sense to eat a plant-based diet: it’s more economical, healthy, sustainable and compassionate!

    • That’s great to hear that you’re eating less meat. We hope more people will make the connection between their pets and farm animals and see that they are all sentient beings who deserve to live in peace. Or hopefully people will see that meat is the number one cause of climate change. Being vegan is the easiest and most efficient means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. If you’re ever in our area, hope you’ll drop by 🙂
