Posts Tagged ‘Meat’

Once a week, I am offering up a tip or action or idea that we can all engage with to help reduce waste, use less materials and energy, help conserve species or habitats, and/or generally work towards living in ways that allow for more health and wellbeing for all aspects of the planet.

So, this week the green thought is about eating less meat. Raising animals as food sources is very costly from the amount of land that is needed to the food and water that the animals require to the pollution that the animals produce (not to mention the pollution from growing the food for the animals) to the energy and materials used to transport and package the meat from those animals. All of those costs make extensive meat eating very impactful on the ecosystems of the world.

A solution is to eat less meat! Even reducing meat consumption by going one full day without meat would make a big difference to the environment. Pick a day (Meatless Mondays have become rather popular) and be a vegetarian for that one day each week (or go vegan if you really want to maximize your impact). Lets all reduce the amount of meat we consume and help to save the planet!
