Meatless Monday’s!

Pledge to go vegetarian at least once a week to reduce meat consumption, which is particularly energy-intensive (compared to grains, fruits or vegetables). A great quantity of oil is required to run all the processes involved in meat production; from the pesticides and fertilizers used to generate feed, to keeping meat cool in refrigerated trucks as they travel long ways to the grocery store. An estimated 30% of the Earth’s ice-free land is involved in livestock production, according to the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization, which also estimates that livestock production generates nearly a fifth of the world’s Greenhouse Gases — that’s more than transportation! The food eaten by a typical Canadian with a meat-based diet accounts for about 860kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year. You can reduce your CO2 emissions by 445kg/year for each person in your household by switching to a meatless diet. While you may not want go to completely vegetarian, meatless Mondays is a great way to start. Learn more about how your food is connect to climate: Food and Climate
