food + vegetarians + factory farming + environment

Lately there’s been a big hoo-haw about the horrific eating habits of North Americans, particularly children. The lovely Jamie Oliver is on a crusade to change the way food is served in schools so kids can eat better and get smarter since good nutrition leads to better education.
But what about us, I’ve been wondering what can we do that’s valuable and sustainable (becuz it’s not always easy being good and green!) and lo and behold, my Treehugger emails pops up with the solution. It’s called the Weekday Vegetarian, and duh, it means you save your (organic) meat eating for weekends. Cut your carbon footprint and do your body good.
It’s significant (reduces impact by 70%).
It’s not too restrictive.
It’ll save you money.
It’s good for your health.
You can start today.
