From the last blog post, we’ve probably all come to the conclusion that being vegan makes a humungous impact for the animals, the environment and our health! But how much of an impact does just one V-Box make? Well, we’ve done the math! Starting next week, V-Grits will have a new feature for V-Box (recipe meal kits with portioned ingredients and spices) and V-Card (recipe meal kits with portioned spices) subscribers! Our new calculations based on the Vegan Calculator (with sourced statistics) will tell you how many animal lives and resources you have saved, and how much pollution you have kept from going out into the planet – all based on the number of V-Boxes/V-Cards you have received! Now every time you get a new shipment, you can be extra-proud of yourself for knowing the positive impact you have made for the planet and our beautiful, intelligent and kind animal friends!
Different ways animal agriculture negatively impacts the environment include the water it takes to feed the animals that are mass-produced, the harmful affects of constant animal transportation from place to place (even after they are slaughtered) to be made into edible products, and the amount of grain feed resulting in habitat loss, species extinction and deforestation. Significantly less water and resources are required to grow crops in comparison the amount of food it takes to feed animals. Not to mention, in places of food scarcity crops are grown to feed the animals, while that same amount of food could have fully fed an impoverished area. But lucky you, V-Boxes are entirely plant-based! So save the planet one box at a time, and get subscribing at VGrits.com!
