#15 Soil Erosion Can Be Fixed With Veganism
Livestock animals are notorious for polluting water and consuming 40% of the world grains. Not only this, but they are also responsible for the erosion and weakening of soil.
Every year, land the size of Panama is cleared to make room for raising livestock. As a result, deforestation has become rampant thus accelerating soil erosion.
Making lifestyle changes could help restore the health of the soil. Increase in plant-based diets would put a check on the number of farmed animals bred each year, which will ultimately reduce the area of pasture land and create more room for raising crops.
Also, more varieties of plants could be grown in the freed-up land, providing more nutritious choices to everyone.
