Go vegetarian once a week for a big impact!

What we eat can have a huge impact on the environment. The meat industry can have all kinds of bad impacts on the environment, from deforestation, to air and water pollution, to greenhouse gas emissions. So what’s the solution? Meatless Monday! Every Monday, opt for a vegetarian option over the normal chicken or beef. There are endless possibilities, and it’s an easy—and delicious—step to reduce your carbon footprint. Meatless Monday is also a great opportunity to educate yourself a little more about your food, how it’s processed, and the impacts it has on the environment around it. If you’re already doing Meatless Monday, or want to go one step further, there are plenty of ways to keep up the good work! Try expanding from one day a week to two or three. See if you can go vegetarian for a whole week! You can also try out a Meatless and Milkless Monday, eating totally vegan for the whole day. And don’t forget that the more the merrier—get friends, family, and coworkers involved in the fun!
