One of the biggest impacts you can have on our environment is by making sustainable food choices. It’s a powerful way to lower greenhouse gas emissions, conserve huge quantities of water, protect forests and oceans, and save energy. You can even save money and guard against heart disease while you are helping your environment!
You don’t have to take it from us, the results of just incorporating a meat-less meal every week are becoming well documented! Check out these amazing sites to read about the movement:
