Go Vegetarian Says Greenpeace

From Greenpeace

Chances are that as someone who cares about the environment, you are always searching for things you can do to help protect it. But did you know that you can help protect the environment by simply making some changes to your diet? Concerned individuals can lower their impact on the planet by cutting down on the animal products they eat each week. Not everyone realizes the impact that raising animals for food has on the environment.

In the United States, more than one third of all fossil fuel and raw material consumption is used to raise livestock.

So whether you decide to go vegetarian or simply cut down on the amount of animal products you consume, eating more plant-based foods is a powerful action you can take to help protect the environment. Finding delicious and healthy meatless alternatives has never been easier with the variety of options that are now available in supermarkets, health food stores and restaurants.

In addition to saving vital chunks of rainforest, consuming less raw materials, saving water and generating less pollution, eating less meat can also provide significant benefits to you and your family. Leading health organizations agree that a balanced plant-based diet can support a lifetime of good health and can help protect against diseases such as cancer and heart disease. So the next time you go food shopping, think about the planet and buy green!
