I’d rather be a ‘reducetarian’ than a vegetarian

Climate change is a phrase we hear very often these days. It’s inevitable, it’s happening, and it’s affecting us. While we watch governments unite under the Paris Treaty to fight it, we also need to take a look at ourselves at home to see what contribution we can make to saving the planet. It is no secret that eating meat contributes to climate change, and while full-fledged vegetarianism isn’t a realistic option for many, reducing meat consumption is small change that can yield big results if many comply.

Key Takeaways:

  • That message has become loud and clear in recent years as science has shown that animal agriculture emits more carbon into the atmosphere than the entire global transportation industry.
  • That is precisely why my husband and I have reduced our family’s meat consumption.
  • I read books and watch documentaries on plant-based eating in order to stay motivated, educated, and on track with this lifestyle change.
