People Have NO CLUE That Eating Meat is Destroying the Environment. Let’s Change That

Quote:
If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it one thousand times … every single person has the ability to influence the world for the better. While it might not seem like an incredibly significant part of your life, your diet actually has the power to literally save the world. And no, we’re not talking about your New Year, New You diet … although, this simple switch would be a great way to kick start 2015.

A new report from Chatham House, a UK-based thinktank, has revealed that not only are the greenhouse gas emissions attributed to the meat and dairy industry off the charts (and not in a good way), but most consumers have no idea how much eating these products impacts the planet. And why would they?!

The animal agriculture industry works really hard to make sure we keep buying more meat and cheese, by hiding the cruelty associated with producing millions of pounds of animal products … so why would their transparency about the environmental impact of these things be any different?
Read the rest here: http://www.onegreenplanet.org/news/p...e-environment/

Please share this with everyone you know to help get the word out! When people think about helping the environment they always think about pollution from cars and recycling etc, they never think about what they're putting on their plate but that can often have the biggest impact.

The meat producing industry is definitely destroying the environment...I have found that some non-vegans and non-vegetarians can be more receptive to this kind of argument than one centred on animal rights...
