• Meatless Monday


    (Easy and very simple tips for eco-friendly lifestyle; but enough to help conserve the treasures of nature.)

    The meteoric rise of meat consumption globally over the last 50 years is no coincidence.

    The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that the meat industry generates nearly one-fifth of the man-made greenhouse gas emissions that are accelerating climate change worldwide—more than the entire transportation sector.

    An estimated 1,800 to 2,500 gallons of water go into a single pound of beef. By comparison, soy tofu produced in California requires only 220 gallons of water per pound.

    Imagine how much carbon and resources we could save if we ate less meat. Even just eating meat one less day a year would make a difference.
