One of the easiest steps to decrease your carbon footprint and to save the planet is by limiting your meat consumption! Join us at @EvieNeedsToEat by participating in Meatless Mondays!
Did you know that meat production plays a massive role in human-made climate change through water use, land transformation, and gas emissions? Here are some stats to influence you to join us in Meatless Mondays:
Global livestock production creates more greenhouse gas than ALL global transportation
It takes 425 gallons of water to make just ONE 1/4 pound beef burger
You could power your phone for SIX months with the same energy required to produce just ONE 1/4 pound beef burger
Participating in Meatless Monday is a super simple step in saving the planet, and it's so easy! Specifically, restaurants do not usually use sustainably-sourced meats and seafoods so not ordering items with those additions enhances your positive impact! Also, if you have a tight budget, Meatless Monday can save you some big bucks since meaty meals cost more than meatless ones! There is literally only pros to Meatless Monday!!!
