For the planet
We’ve all heard the words “climate change,” “global warming,” “deforestation,” and so on. Many people think they can’t do anything to stop these phenomena. But they can!
According to Livestock's Long Shadow, a 2006 Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN report, the global meat industry is responsible for 18% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions; this is more than all modes of transport (cars, airplanes, ships, trains, etc.) combined!
You don’t need to wait for slow government legislation or expensive industry innovation around technologies like renewable energy, electric automobiles, etc. The most effective individual action you can take in the name of environmental protection is to change the way you get your proteins.
This video explains in only 2.5 mins how reducing one’s meat consumption can help to restore the environment
