The food you eat says a lot about your carbon footprint, which is why on April 22, PETA’s launching “Go Vegan for the Earth Day,” a new campaign urging everyone to eat vegan for the day, at least.
This year, whether you’re hosting an Earth Day luncheon, getting a to-go latte in a reusable coffee mug instead of a Styrofoam one, or taking a turn cooking dinner for your roommates, choosing vegan foods and drinks is the way to do good for the planet.
Every individual who eats vegan saves 5,000 liters of water, 18 kilograms of grain, and 3 square meters of forested land each day. So if planet Earth means the world to you (see what we did there?), do it a favor: Try vegan!
What Do You Do for Earth Day?
There are lots of ways to celebrate your “Go Vegan for the Earth Day” pledge! You can share fun facts with your friends on Twitter—tell them that not eating a half a kilogram of beef saves more water than not showering for six months. Or you can bring a vegan dessert to the office or to any gathering to share (or post a photo of your favorite vegan recipe on Instagram if you’re working from home). Learn more about animal agriculture’s effects on the Earth by hosting a Cowspiracy movie party or a Seaspiracy Netflix party (use Teleparty or Zoom to watch with your friends remotely). And of course, the number one way to honor Mother Earth on April 22 (or any ol’ day) is to choose vegan food.
What Is the Theme for Earth Day 2021?
You heard it here first: The theme for this year is “Go Vegan for the Earth Day”! The climate crisis is scary, but vegan food is delicious and humane—and opting for it is one of the most effective actions anyone can take to fight climate change. So if you’re wondering, “How can I make a difference on Earth Day?” or “How do we make every day Earth Day?” you’re in luck. Opting for vegan foods—whether for takeaway or in the kitchen—is one of the simplest and most surefire ways we can help ensure a sustainable future.
When You're Vegan, Every Day Is Earth Day!
We can all help halt climate change and other environmental problems by eating vegan foods rather than animal-based ones and urging our friends and social media followers to do the same. On April 22, share photos of your planet-friendly, plant-based dishes on Instagram—don’t forget to tag @petaasia and include the hashtag #VeganForEarthDay.
One Person—and One Day—Can Make a Difference
Go Vegan for the Earth Day!
