How Going Meatless For One Meal A Week Can Really Help The Planet


Animal agriculture is a major force influencing climate change, according to environmental experts. Curbing this kind of environmental disaster is a tough order, but there’s one simple thing you can do to help: Eat less meat. 


On our third episode of “Sustainable Self,” a series about how your everyday choices can significantly impact the earth, we explain how going meatless for just one meal a week can help save water and cut down on greenhouse gas emissions. Making that one switch can even help reduce global hunger because much of our grain production goes directly to feeding livestock.


Eating less meat doesn’t just help the planet – it’s good for your health, too.


Talk about a win-win situation.
