With more than 7 billion people in the world and growing all the time, how will our small and finite planet continue to feed us all in the future? We believe plant power is the answer, and soya a great place to start. Lets look at some facts.
There’s no need to give up meat to make a huge difference to the planet – just a small step such as occasionally switching to a soya alternative is all it takes. Here’s why…
Cows need space, not just to graze on but for crops to feed them; dairy milk takes up 3 times more than its soya equivalent.
To produce a beef burger takes 45 times as much land as its soya equivalent, often gobbling up forests for grazing and feed crops.
For every single litre of water that goes into producing soya drinks, it takes 2.5 to produce the same amount of dairy milk.
It takes 20 times less water – an increasingly precious resource – to produce a soya burger than its thirsty beef equivalent.
Producing a litre of soya emits 5 times less CO2 than cows’ milk. Less methane, too.
Soya burgers produce ten times less CO2 than their beef equivalents – good news for the climate.
