The task of changing your lifestyle in order to help reduce environmental impacts can seem daunting. After all, what can one person do when the problem seems so huge? According to Graham Hill, founder of treehugger.com, practicing weekday vegetarianism is a great way to effect change. By decreasing meat consumption for a portion of the week environmental impacts from large-scale factory farming are decreased. Basically, if you eat less meat, less meat needs to be produced and less waste from factory farms pollutes our environment. Even cutting out meat from your diet for one day a week will help!
This program has positive effects for your health, wallet, and our environment. Give it a try, I think you will find it's not that hard to skip a burger once in a while. As Graham says, "If all of us ate half as much meat, it would be like half of us were vegetarians." Watch the video below for more information. And remember, a little change can go a long way, especially when we are doing it together!
