Skip red meat today

You’ve heard that raising cattle is terrible for the environment, but did you know that, according to this 2014 study, beef requires 28 times more land and water to produce than pork and chicken? Cattle digestion is also responsible for 65% of livestock emissions in the form of methane (farting and belching) and Nitrous Dioxide and Carbon Dioxide.

So instead of a burger for lunch or steak at dinner, go for any other meat. Better yet, make something bean-based. At least for today.
