Our Planet – Being the Best Steward You Can Be

Excerpt from the CVA booklet Compassionate Eating: Honoring God's Creation (PDF)...  

In Genesis 2:15, God instructed Adam to “till” and “keep” the Garden of Eden, and by analogy we may see caring for God’s Creation as our sacred task. The typical meat eater’s diet requires up to 14 times more water and 20 times more energy than that of a vegetarian. Indeed, current use of land, water, and energy is not sustainable, and resource depletion threatens to cause great hardships for humankind this century.

A recent report concluded that worldwide livestock production contributes 51% of humanity’s greenhouse gasses: Livestock and Climate Change (PDF). The most important thing people can do to reduce their contribution to global warming is to reduce their use of animal products.
