Kind Pantry supports environmental stewardship. Growing plant foods is a more sustainable approach to feeding people. An animal based diet waste and pollutes water  damages air quality , and contributes to climate change.  A recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reported the following: if all animal-based food production in the United States were replaced by nutritionally equivalent plant-based crops, the country could feed an additional 350 million people (which is more than the total US population).
