    With any meat, including sausage, you have to consider how the animal was raised to understand the environmental implications.  Sausage made from elk or deer that have been hunted has little environmental impact compared to beef or pork sausage made from animals raised in large, industrial CAFOs.

    They are as good (or bad) as any other meat. On a bright note, sausage casings are made from the animals intestines, and that’s recycling.

    Meat production has some significant environmental implications. It is one of the largest contributors to environmental degradation in the world, according to a 2006 report by the Livestock, Environment and Development Initiative. It is estimated that 18 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions come from meat production. Also, animals fed with grain require more water than grain crops. In addition, land must be cleared for the animals, which contributes to deforestation and various other environmental problems.
