There are many ways that we can reduce our carbon footprint, such as using public transit, recycling or taking shorter showers. Although these are great things that we should all practice, doing this one other thing will have a significantly higher impact – and that is to eat less meat & dairy.
I know the topic of eating or not eating meat can be quite controversial. Today on DECODED, I want to share the environmental effects that animal agriculture has on the planet we live on.
Now, before anyone gets really offended, let me start off by saying I’m not a vegan or a vegetarian. I’m working towards living a more plant-based lifestyle, but I’m not 100% there yet. There are more reasons now to switch to a plant-based diet after reading many medical journals, but I think it’s important that we are aware that the choices we make, even when planning dinner, could make a huge impact on the environment.
