What Are We Fighting For?

Planet Protein was founded to offer customers an opportunity to live consciously and consume products that align with their values. We were sick of seeing our society fed with products that harm themselves and our environment, all wrapped in deceptive advertising. Born from an overnight vegan awakening, over time our company has evolved to fight for the shared goals of a cleaner planet and a healthier you. We set out to restore faith in food, and show people an alternative to products that damage our bodies and destroy our environment. 

 

1 bag = 1 life
For every bag of protein powder you enjoy, trees are planted, the planet is protected, and the life of one farm animal is saved.

Healthy decisions shouldn’t harm our planet.

We Plant a Tree for every bag sold.


We believe a sustainable company begins with its own internal practices and the products it creates. Beyond our own self-reflection, sustainable companies give back.

We’ve teamed up with One Tree Planted, a leading reforestation group making a difference in the places hit hardest by animal agriculture and slash and burn deforestation. Check them out below!

So What’s the Problem?

It begins with animal agriculture,

…and the industries that support the way we eat as a whole. We’re using the food that could end starvation to feed livestock, whose products are often loaded with chemicals, hormones, and unnatural colors/preservatives.

The connection between poverty, disease, and even… death is too much to ignore. The impact these industries have are at best in open neglect of the damage done to those they serve, and at worst a willing participant – exchanging the health of their customers for ever-increasing profits.

A Universal Impact

Our Simple Choices Impact People, Animals, and Ecosystems in Every Corner of the Globe

If a plant-based diet is the most effective way to combat climate change, ocean pollution, deforestation, and preventable death, it only makes sense that a diet rich in animal products would contribute to the opposite. Here are only a handful of the ways animal agriculture & chemical industries have caused incredible harm throughout our environment.

For the Hungry

We can end world hunger through a global shift towards plant based foods.

We’re not talking about what you scrape off your plate after a hearty meal, we’re talking grain and soy that could end global starvation on its own. In 2011, the world’s grain farmers set a new record, with a global yield of 2.5 billion tons. Sadly, half of all production was fed directly to livestock in the meat and dairy industries. This included 77% of coarse grains like corn and barley along with 90% of all global soy production. These inefficient agricultural practices have a disparate impact on developing countries, with many of these nations capable of ending their own famines by simply redirecting grain and soy supplies to their citizens instead of livestock.

For Our Lungs

Factory Farming is the Primary Source of Anthropogenic GHG emissions

Animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than all global transportation combined. This includes emissions from the facilities, infrastructure, transportation, storage, and yes, the animals themselves.

Cows release significant amounts of methane, which is 25-100x more dangerous than C02 within a two decade timeframe. In the United States, the methane emissions between the natural gas and livestock industry are nearly the same – an incredible 150 billion gallons per day!

For Our Oceans

It is estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by weight

We’re thankful that the plastic problem has been brought to the mainstream, but that only scratches the surface of what our oceans are facing due to human activity. Commercial fishing activities have taken a massive toll on our oceanic biodiversity. Some estimations indicate that up to 40% of all global fish caught annually are discarded as by-kill. This amounts to 63 billion pounds. Not counted among this total are the estimated 650,000 whales, dolphins, and seals that are killed yearly by fishing operations. While consumer behavior contributes to much of the plastic found in our oceans, the majority is comprised of discarded fishing nets, including 46% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Land based animal agriculture contributes massively to oceanic dead zones and water pollution. The use of pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, antibiotics, and hormones all find their way into runoff that eventually enters major bodies of water. These chemicals disrupt the reproductive and behavioral cycles of aquatic life. The correlation between these two industries and the destruction left in their wake cannot be understated.

For Our Neighbors

Fecal waste from Animal Agriculture leads to increased asthma, cancer, and disease risk for nearby populations.

Beyond the internal damage these foods cause when they’re consumed at the end of the supply chain, factory farms cause direct harm to the residents who live in rural, often impoverished counties around the country. Most notable is Duplin County, and North Carolina at large, which houses 10 million pigs. Farmed pigs produce ten to thirty times the waste of humans – enough to represent nearly 1/3 of the American population. With no reasonable method to dispose of the waste, pig farmers often spray it into the air and over the fields, sometimes within 100 feet of nearby residents. This corrupts the air, water, and food supply, further suppressing an already mostly poor rural community.

The aftermath of Hurricane Florence revealed just how dangerously unsanitary these factory farms had become. Hog farmers began to escalate aerial dispersion of the waste in anticipation of the storm. The floodwaters forced waste lagoons to overflow into the general runoff. The vast impact of factory farming is seen at every level of the supply chain, damaging lives from end-to-end.
