What is the difference in carbon footprint between a vegan and a non vegan person?

      Eating vegan cuts your carbon footprint by about 2 tons per year. The average American’s footprint (based on only food consumption, of course) is 2.57 tons, so that’s a significant difference!

    A study from the University of Chicago found that meat eaters produce 1.5 more tons of carbon dioxide than vegans because of the huge amount of energy needed to sustain the meat-producing industry and the methane produced by cows. The meat industry accounts for 18 percent of the world’s carbon emissions (for perspective, the airline industry only emits about 2.5 percent). Reducing or eliminating meat and animal products from your diet is one of the biggest steps you can take in reducing carbon emissions and helping abate the impact you are having on the environment.
