On average, Americans consume 270 lbs. of meat per year, which requires a ton of resources and energy.
A recent study conducted by Quantis andMorningStar Farms®* proves that if U.S. adults switched just one meat-containing meal for a veggie meal, they could save thousands of acres of land, billions of gallons of water, and hundreds of miles in greenhouse gas emissions. And that’s just one meal!
You can make a huge difference by switching one meat meal with a veggie one. It’s better for you and the planet. #WayToVeg
