As humans we grow a lot of crops to feed animals, and we cut down a lot of forests to do that. But beef, far more than pork or chicken, contributes to environmental harm, in part because it requires much more land. The greenhouse gas production per serving of chicken or pork is about 20 percent that of a serving of beef.
Cows also put out an enormous amount of methane, causing almost 10 percent of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to climate change.
This is why at ISP we will contribute with our planet's sustainability and leave beef out for one day. Remember there is a whole lot of other fun and delicious sources of protein that we can count on at the end of the week.
