Spring for a cleaner planet
Did you know you could change your carbon imprint just by going meatless one day a week? A 2013 study by the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization reports that meat production generates more greenhouse gases than all the world’s cars, planes, trains, and ships combined. That adds up to an estimated 15 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions. Simply by changing what’s on your plate, you can help the planet breathe more easily.
