Climate and Environmental Impacts of Agriculture

Solutions for a healthier planet


Animal agriculture has extensive impacts on the environment, climate, and our health. It is a principal cause of deforestation, water quantity and quality issues, significant biodiversity loss, and it emits vast amounts of greenhouse gases such as methane. Toxic chemicals, such as PFAS and phthalates, found in meat and dairy are making us sick. This webinar will explore the specific impacts of animal agriculture, and offer solutions as to how to minimize these impacts.
