1000 Flowers for the Planet - #211 Try Vegetarian Once a Week
A lot of the planet’s resources are invested in raising animals for meat consumption. I confess to quite happily being a meat eater, but if every human carnivore chose to eat a meat-free meal only once a week, imagine the reduced pressure on the demand for meat, and thereby the savings of many resources such as transportation, energy, fuel, grains, and even plastic which is used to package the meat. Vegetarian meals are extremely tasty and you can make it as simple as eating a bowl of hearty vegetable soup with a piece of crusty bread – yum. It’s a very easy shift to make in your thinking, saves at least one seventh of your demand on meat products, will provide you with a much cheaper meal, so some financial savings there too, and helps the planet in a big way.
