Allan Savory: How to green the desert and reverse climate change
Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert,” begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And it's happening to about two-thirds of the world’s grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

The USDA finds that raising animals 100% on grass instead of corn finishing in feedlots or confinement factory farms, produced fewer pollutants and other emissions[i].

Ten reasons why 100% grass-fed/finished meat is better for the environment:
  1. Total emissions for greenhouse gases are 8 percent lower
  2. Ammonia emissions are reduced by 30 percent
  3. Reduces fuel use, as well as the carbon dioxide emissions from farm equipment (grass is solar powered)
  4. Converting cropland to grassland captures carbon in the soil, substantially reducing the carbon footprint
  5. Greatly reduces erosion and flooding caused from growing feed stock (corn and soy)
  6. Improves water quality because of the huge drop in sediment erosion caused from growing feed stock (corn and soy)
  7. Greatly reduces manure and fertilizer runoff thereby significantly reducing phosphorous in the water
  8. Since fertilizer is not used to grow feed stock, there's no runoff causing huge algae blooms, "dead-zones," in the oceans
  9. Since manure lagoons or piles are unnecessary, there's no pathogen runoff that pollutes the water system or stinks up the air
  10. Encourages biodiversity of native grasses that benefits wildlife rather than monoculture with baron winter fields[ii]
KOL Foods' is feedlot free: 100% grass-fed, 100% grass-finished or pasture-raised.

The choice is clear – 100% grass-fed/finished meat is the environmentally conscious way to eat.

Feel good about the meat you eat.
