I’ve heard that pigs are one of the smarter barnyard animals, and even know someone who kept a pig as a pet in their apartment—and who swore that little “Billy” was smarter and cleaner than a dog.
No matter what your views are on meat consumption, there’s no denying that the pork industry has a huge environmental impact. Though Americans consume less pork than we do chicken or beef, pigs create more waste than other factory farmed animals, and are injected with more hormones.
And never fear, pork lovers. Chipotle pioneered the free range pork movement and offers decent meat in their burritos. Small farms and ranches are another great resource for clean and humane meats. Your local farmers’ market is a great place to start.
