Eat Vegetarian- Even Part Time- Helps the Planet

3 Feb

Did you know that going meat free helps the Earth? The meat industry is a top source for greenhouse gas methane according to a 2006 United Nations Food & Agricultural Organization report. In fact meat and dairy production create more carbon emissions than all the cars and trucks on the highways. Reason why is that cows emit methane which traps 21 times more heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. Their solid waste produces nitrous oxide which is a greenhouse gas 300 times more powerful than CO2.

Try going meat free for one day with the Great American Meatout on March 20th.

We are not advocating that everyone should go vegetarian. Just cut back on the amount and frequency that you eat meat.
