Local vs. Plant-Based: Which One Is Better for the Environment?

The local movement has grown tremendously in the past years as well as the awareness about environmental issues that are impossible to ignore, such as the amount of fossil fuels used in the transportation of food and the global warming gases produced. However, more important than even being a locavore is eating fewer or no animal products. The fact is very simple, as stated in an analysis in the Journal of Environmental Science and Technology: “Shifting less than one day per week's worth of calories from red meat and dairy products to chicken, fish, eggs, or a vegetable-based diet achieves more GHG reduction than buying all locally sourced food."

Waking up to realization that we have control over most of the consequences of our food choices is not only liberating but also empowering. By not supporting the meat, dairy and egg industries we are alleviating the most voluminous cruelty on God’s animals, we are helping restore the environment, we are providing our bodies with healthy foods and most importantly we are aligning our values and beliefs with our choices.
