Intensive farming may have made cashmere more affordable, but overgrazing has also led to widespread environmental damage and animal suffering.
Deforestation continues to wipe out the Amazon rainforest at alarming rates — threatening to release climate emissions and wipe out wildlife and Indigenous communities.
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, especially clearing land for cattle and soy to feed farmed animals.
Animal farming is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, including methane and nitrous oxide.
While there are many drivers of deforestation, a leading cause is animal agriculture.

From an early age, we’re taught that milk is essential to our growth and development. What we’re not taught is where that milk comes from.
A new report from Collective Fashion Justice and the Center for Biological Diversity explores the wool industry’s “shear destruction” of indigenous plant and animal life.
Animal agriculture is one of the leading sources of methane emissions, but world leaders have a bad habit of downplaying its impact or ignoring it entirely.
The service offers companies “robust certification” capable of demonstrating that their net-zero target will reduce emissions at the pace and scale required to keep global warming to 1.5°C.
Animal agriculture generates massive amounts of greenhouse gases, despite the industry’s recent efforts to clean up its act.
The fires in Brazil are part of a global problem, one which highlights the direct link between deforestation and loss of ecosystems with dietary choices made thousands of miles away.
Factory farming is part of a global food system that prioritizes cheap food at the expense of animal welfare, society, and the environment.
The conditions in which cows are farmed are detrimental to the air, water, habitat, and soil. Experts say the industry has been slow to adapt.
Potty training cows to curb emissions seems like a harmless idea, but it’s no silver bullet. In fact, it does more to distract from the problem than solve it.
The environmental impact of animal agriculture is hard to ignore. “Eating Our Way To Extinction,” a new documentary narrated by Kate Winslet, shows us why.

A surprisingly large percentage of greenhouse gas emissions comes from the food we feed farmed animals. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Move over, fossil fuels. The meat and dairy industries have a much bigger part to play in the climate crisis than most people are willing to admit.
We’ve long counted on climate groups to model what a sustainable future looks like—one where single-use plastics are rare and electric cars are business as usual. But what about the way we eat?
JBS, the largest meat company on the planet, recently committed to achieving zero deforestation across its global supply chain by 2035. Critics say by then it may be too late.
Despite the industry’s best efforts to hide behind labels that make chicken farming appear more eco-friendly, it still has devastating consequences for animals and the environment.
As transformative and applicable as biochar may be, it will have little effect on the overall sustainability of our food system if agricultural practices otherwise remain the same.
Deforestation is a global problem. If it increases the risk of disease, which we now know it does, then the prognosis is more economic catastrophe.
Follow along as climate researchers debunk another industry-backed study bragging about the perceived benefits of regenerative agriculture.
Variations on a meme claiming that 100 companies are responsible for 71 percent of greenhouse gas emissions have become ubiquitous on the internet. The problem is, they may not be true.
Pesticide producers have a long history of lobbying against environmental regulations. Now, they’re using power and influence to manipulate legitimate climate strategies for their own ends.
Meat producers are trying to trick the rapidly growing sector of eco-conscious consumers into believing that they are partners in the solution to climate change. And people are eating it up.

The industry’s quiet campaign to greenwash its image has a new partner in crime: the emerging biogas industry.
Danone, Tyson, and other food giants have promised to reduce emissions in their supply chain, as part of an industry-wide push for sustainability. Will they deliver?
