Why Carbon Footprint Eating

Eating me
at is not "bad", we are just finding out the hidden cost.

Traditional meat production is a major polluter of greenhouse gases, yet most people are still not willing to give up a meat-based diet.

If meat consumption continues as is, global warming will probably reach the tipping point.

If we can make it easy, fun and safe for lots of people to switch to a plant-based diet, we could reverse global warming.

We are creating a pathway for people on a meat-based diet to try out a plant-based diet.

We are putting out the challenge for people to eat a plant-based diet for one month.

We call it: Meatless Month for Mother Earth.


What the Science Says:

*From www.Drawdown.org ,
the world's leading resource for climate solutions.

Plant-Rich Diets (#4 out of the top 80 solutions)

Consumption of meat and dairy, as well as overall calories, often exceeds nutritional recommendations. Paring down and favoring plant-based foods reduces demand, thereby reducing land clearing, fertilizer use, burping cattle, and greenhouse gas emissions.

SOLUTION SUMMARY*

Shifting to a diet rich in plants is a demand-side solution to global warming that runs counter to the meat-centric Western diet on the rise globally. That diet comes with a steep climate price tag: one-fifth of global emissions. If cattle were their own nation, they would be the world’s third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases.

Plant-rich diets reduce emissions and also tend to be healthier, leading to lower rates of chronic disease. According to a 2016 study, business-as-usual emissions could be reduced by as much as 70 percent through adopting a vegan diet and 63 percent for a vegetarian diet, which includes cheese, milk, and eggs. $1 trillion in annual health-care costs and lost productivity would be saved.
