In case you haven't noticed, our planet is under duress.
drought conditions and dwindling access to fresh water are rippling across the us and the world. climate-warming greenhouse gas emissions are at an all-time high. sea-level rise looks increasingly frightening. and food shortages are looming.
with worldwide populations expected to soar to 9.6 billion by 2050, food production will have to increase by 70% worldwide and by 100% in developing countries to keep up.
but you need land and water to harvest food - and unfortunately, both of these resources are heavily stressed.
so what can you do to help? take shorter showers to save water? ride your bike to work to curb emissions? compost all of your coffee grounds, egg shells, and vegetable waste into soil?
all of these ideas are great. but by far, the most important thing you can do is shockingly simple: you can stop eating or cut down your consumption of meat. #earthday #vegan
