An example of Ahimsa in action: Plant based diets. We will on average, reduce the amount of water needed for food production, use land more efficiently, grow more nutritiously dense food, reduce harm to animals through mass farming and slaughter, and have a net-negative carbon impact. Through one action we simultaneously reduce food insecurity, malnourishment and health problems, reverse gas-based climate change, promote animal welfare, and support biodiversity – Applying Ahimsa will reduce the impact of animal agriculture on the planet.
“A vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth, not just greenhouse gases, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use and water use”
