Did you know that in addition to hurting animals, eating animal products wreaks havoc on our environment and our health? For every day you eat vegan rather than consuming animal products, you save:
- 1,100 gallons of water;
- 40 pounds of grain, which could be used to feed the hungry;
- 30 square feet of forest;
- 20 pounds of CO2; and
- At least 1 animal.

Pledging to go vegan means avoiding all animal products, including meat, fish, dairy, and eggs, and focusing instead on veggies, fruit, grains, and beans.
