Raising animals for food takes an enormous toll on the planet
because of the great amount of natural resources needed. For
example, as far as water goes, “to produce one pound of beef is
1,799 gallons of water; one pound of pork takes 576 gallons of
water. As a comparison, the water footprint of soybeans is 216
gallons; corn is 108 gallons.”
Meat's large water footprint: why raising livestock and poultry for
meat is so resource-intensive.
We are wasting precious resources in order to keep a supply of
animal products, which most are not needed at all. This waste of
resources already puts much stress on the planet that translate into
hardships for people and God’s animals, especially on the
generations to come. We cannot claim to be good stewards of God’s
Creation when we torture and kill billions of animals every year
while devastating the planet.
