Did you know that the meat industry is responsible for approximately 20% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions? In fact, producing one calorie of meat requires nearly twenty times the amount of energy as one plant calorie!
With global meat consumption tripling over the last four decades, the meat industry now emits over 36 billion tons of greenhouse gases annually and is showing no signs of slowing down. If we want to make a real dent in the world’s carbon footprint and reduce our own personal footprint, we need to eat less meat.
In addition, studies have found that those who eat less meat have a lower risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke and cancer.
Join us in helping mitigate the climate crisis! Take the pledge to not eat meat one day a week and become a part of the Meatless Monday movement for the betterment of our health and planet!
