Waterfall Villas Vegan Costa Rica

Do you know what being vegan has to do with environmentalism? It doesn’t sound like a person who eats hamburgers versus a person who eats tofu scramble should have extravagantly different effects on global warming – but, in fact, they do.

costa rica veganWhich industry do you suppose uses more water? Cattle? Or Tomatoes? Considering what we all know about plants – they need minerals from soil and nourishment from regular watering and sunlight – then, surely, it’s the tomato crop. Cows only need to drink the water, right?

Think of how many tomatoes are produced for human consumption based on demand which, unfortunately, goes towards more processed varieties. Approximately 65 pounds of tomatoes are consumed per person in the United States in the form of pizza sauce, ketchup, pasta sauce, etc. To grow one pound of tomatoes, you need approximately 22 gallons of water. That sounds like a lot at first glance, until you learn how much water is used to produce one point of beef:

It takes approximately 2500 – 5000 gallons of water to make one hamburger each for four people.

The average person in the United States consumes approximately 95 animals per year and, of the 56 billion farmed animals killed for human consumption, cows are the largest group by far, estimated to an average of 41 million eaten per year. This increases the use of water up to staggering heights. 


Being vegan in Costa Rica(vegan costa rica) can help decrease global warming.

You’ve heard for ages how car emissions burning gas contribute to global warming gases which eat away at our protective atmosphere. So, how does a vegan who drives to work compare to continuing to eat meat while opting to take the bus to work?

It’s true – commuters save considerably on gasoline emissions by removing a car from the road.

However, the emissions given off by the waste of the billions of animals farmed for human consumption far outweigh that of carpooling. Oxford University conducted a study to compare how diets effected contribution to global warming gas emissions and found the contributions of meat eaters to global warming outweigh that of vegans two and half times. The meat industry contributes up to 18% of total global greenhouse gas emissions while all transportation combined contributes approximately 14%.


Waterfall Villas practices a vegan lifestyle in Costa Rica in an effort to conserve resources depleted by the animal product industry

In Costa Rica, the deforestation occurring in the rainforests are largely the work of the meat industry. Choosing to serve our guests locally sourced fruits, grains, and vegetables to create memorably delicious vegan meals promotes the preservation of our rapidly declining resources.

In an age where communities in the United States do not have local access to safe, clean drinking water but plenty of hamburgers to go around, taking part in an inherently wasteful system is something a true vegan environmentalist cannot do.

The Waterfall Villas in Costa Rica seeks to do its part in repairing the damage inflicted upon the environment. True environmentalists know our best plan for preserving this planet is to stop the behaviors which deplete her.
