Our Support

Animal agriculture leads to health and environmental damage.
Our food choices are more relevant today than ever.

Health

Several studies have shown that the consumption of animal products leads to

Increased risk of cancer and type-2 diabetes

Higher rates of high blood pressure

Increased cholesterol levels

Intensive animal agriculture has also been linked to numerous zoonotic diseases and is a huge risk to public health.

Planet

Biggest Polluter
Indian livestock emits over 15.3 million tons of methane every year.

Depleting Resources
Animal agriculture uses 33% of drinking water and 83% of farmland.

Greenhouse Gases
Livestock produces 60% of agriculture’s GHGs despite providing only 37% of our protein.

India ranks 5th in the Global Climate Risk Index and millions of lives are at stake.

Lives

Human Lives
A million people lost their homes due to climate change in 2019. 600 million people will be affected due to climate change events like floods and droughts in India.

Biodiversity Loss
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation and linked to 60% of global biodiversity loss.

Food Security
Raising animals for food currently uses over one-third of the planet’s landmass, which can be used to grow more food for people.

The solution is to replace meat and dairy products with plant-based food options in your cafeteria at least once a week.
