Reducing my carbon footprint…

One meal at a time!

Check out the green tip of the week:

• Eating 1 lb. of meat emits the same amount of gases as driving an SUV 40 miles
• According to Environmental Defense, if every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetarian foods instead, the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than a half-million cars off U.S. roads.
• Americans eat about eight ounces (of meat) a day, roughly twice the global average.
• Meat consumption is reaching an all-time high around the world, quadrupling in the last 50 years
