Save Water, And Save The World
Staggeringly, a report from Global Meat News divulged that 92 percent of the whole world’s water footprint is linked to agriculture. The vast majority of that is claimed by the meat industry. Industrially rearing animals is seriously water-intensive! Between growing feed crops, and raising and processing the animals themselves, the water demand is huge. To frame the point clearly, UNEP pointed out that a bacon cheeseburger requires no less than 3,000 liters of water to produce. It's vegan meat burger equivalent calls for 75 to 95 percent less water to reach your dinner plate!
Shrink Your Greenhouse Gasses Footprint
A study in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences journal revealed that a global switch to a vegan diet could save 70% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. If that's possible, imagine what a complete vegan lifestyle – fashion included – could achieve! Thanks to climate activists from around the world, we have never been more aware of the urgent need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. Changing to a vegan diet is undoubtedly one of the most powerful tools that we can each harness. So, here at Viktoria we say let's go change the world!
Join Us In Our Mission To Support Ocean Biodiversity
The impact of factory farming for leather livestock is just as devastating as that of the meat industry. Runoff from industrial farms winds up in our waterways, and in turn in our oceans, where it contributes to pollution, and acidification. Realizing the scale of the impact that human activity has had on our oceans is a difficult moment to face. The increasing loss of marine biodiversity due to pollution and over fishing is further weakening the ocean's ability to adapt to climate change. This is why we pledge a percentage of each Viktoria sale to the ocean preservation. We walk the walk through innovation on behalf of animal lovers, and supporting environmental organization dedicated to protecting our seas. These are some of the vital ingredients that give the Viktoria team their get-up-and-go perspective!
Rise Up For Re-Wilding, Looking After Trees, And Bees!
Raising livestock to make leather requires huge amounts of land. First comes the land to grow the food stock. The land on which the animals themselves are raised comes second. Research from Oxford University shockingly showed us that beef production requires 36 times more land than producing plant-based proteins, like peas. Humanity's hunger for meat and leather drives deforestation all over the world. Tragically, the Amazon fires that broke our hearts last year were largely attributed to farmers wanting to illegally clear rainforest and make way for livestock.
When all that land is being used to produce animal products, not much is left for biodiversity. This poses a threat to the very fabric of the natural world, because our very survival relies on bees! Those busy little creatures pollinate 250,000 different plants, including many that we grow for food. As vegans, we can do far more than avoid eating honey to help these little allies. We can work to support them by keeping our planet abundant and beautiful. As you can see, making ethical fashion choices such as vegan leather will have a powerful knock-on effect in all areas of our life on our home planet.
Make sure your buying choices celebrate our incredible world, rather than exploit it!
