It doesn’t have to be!
The great thing about veganism is that it requires a lot less land to produce our food than animal products. If we all went vegan, global farmland use could be reduced by more than 75 percent – an area equivalent to the US, China, European Union and Australia combined.1
This means two important things: one, we would stop cutting down ancient forests and driving wild species to extinction because we would not need that land.
And secondly, land already in use could revert to natural habitats. We could grow our fruits, vegetables, legumes, salads and herbs on suitable farmland and the land that is not suitable for this could once again support our wildlife including our small but important pollinators.
There are so many ways in which choosing a vegan diet will benefit our environment, and this is why Oxford University researchers say that going vegan is the single biggest thing that we as individuals can do to help the planet.2
