Healthier Lifestyle = Huge Environment Impact
New Year is here and along with it, all those resolutions. This year why not resolve to a healthier lifestyle that could also have a huge impact on our environment?
Did you know that it takes up about 2400 gallons of water to produce only one pound of meat? Livestock and poultry in the US use large amounts of water-intensive feed. By reducing the amount of meat you consume, you can help conserve our precious water resources.
Also, eating less meat, especially red and processed meat, can help you cut back on saturated fats and cholesterol, lowering your risks for obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and early mortality.
And you don’t have to go completely vegetarian or vegan —start with one day a week—think Meatless Mondays!
