The environment

55 billion animal slaughtered last year

Here’s the cost – devastation of the global environment and a threat to our children’s future. But don’t take Viva!’s word for it.

“Livestock’s contribution to environmental problems is on a massive scale. The impact is so significant that it needs to be addressed with urgency.” United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation 2006

Think of almost any environmental catastrophe and you’ll find livestock at the heart of it. 

You can end your part in this destruction right now, today, with one simple decision. 

What can I do?

The best way to end the suffering of animals and go green is to go vegan - or at least start in that direction. We can help you do just that

Please also consider a donation to help us continue to expose animal abuse and fight for a greener tomorrow. If you like what Viva! does and want to become part of our work why not join today?
