Are meat substitutes just as damaging to the environment than the meat itself?

    Typically, vegetarians have touted their anti-meat lifestyles as better for the environment. However, a recent study has concluded that this may not always be the case. When you take into account the costs of shipping some meat substitutes, such as soy and garbanzo beans, to wherever you buy them from, it turns out that the resources used are equal, or more to, those associated with getting meat. The best way to ensure that your food purchases and buying habits are environmentally friendly is to buy organic, locally grown food, whether that be meat or meat substitutes.
