Meatless Monday

Factory farming currently accounts for more greenhouse gases than the entire transportation sector. Raising farm animals is incredibly unsustainable. This is due to the greenhouse gases produced and the amount of water used. 500 gallons of water are used to make a single 1/4 pound hamburger, or 10 whole bathtubs. If you eat one less serving of beef every Monday for a year, you could save 348 miles of emissions! Going meatless on Mondays is a great way to live more sustainably! On Monday, the 26th, considering going Meatless!
