‘All veggie’ benefits the environment, too.
Intensive livestock farming is accelerating climate change. The carbon footprint for one kilo of vegetables is twenty times lower than for one kilo of pork. And vegetables need considerably less water, too. We’ve noticed a real difference since transitioning our entire production to vegetarian. For example, when we produce our Grün-Ohr-Bärchen (green-eared bears), our harmful emissions (e.g. CO2 and methane) are around 20% lower than for gummy bears that contain gelatine. And we use 42% less water. So changing our production was a win-win situation all round – for animals and for all of us.
