The production of plant foods require significantly less land, water and energy than animal products, leading to less emissions being produced - making vegan diets much more eco-friendly.</p></div></div><div id='' class='whywelove-item'><div id='' class='whywelove-letter-cont'><div class='whywelove-letter'>B</div></div><div id='why-we-love-main-cont'><h3 id='' class='whywelove-title'>Veganism reduces animal cruelty</h3><p id='' class='whywelove-text'>By eating a vegan diet, you are reducing the demand for animal products which, in turn, lowers the number of animals being kept in intensive husbandry facilities or slaughtered every day. It also helps to reduce supporting industries that are responsible for animal suffering or exploitation such as fur farms or fishing operations.</p></div></div>
