Eating Less Meat

Did you know choosing a more plant-based diet is the most powerful thing you can do for the environment and your health?

With the continuous increase of our global population, the demand for meat continues to increase. Due to this growing uncertainty of being able to maintain this demand, we need to reach a plateau in order to preserve sustainable livelihoods as well as a sustainable environment. Otherwise we are depleting our resources and destroying ecosystems that cannot be recovered for the health of our planet as well as for our own lives. With emitting more greenhouse gases than ever before, let’s do our part to reduce as much as we can.

Create Less Waste

How much of your consumption is ending in landfills? Reducing waste means less environmental impact, less resources & energy used, all while saving money. 

 

The most effective way to reduce your waste is reusing the things you already have. Making a product requires a lot of materials & energy: from extracting raw resources from the earth, fabricating the product to transportation. As a result, reducing what you buy and reusing what you have are the most effective ways you can save natural resources, protect the environment and save money. If needed to buy, opt for second-hand products!

Use Less Energy

When you use less energy & power, you reduce the amount of toxic fumes released by power plants  & thus conserve the earth’s natural resources. By taking steps to reduce your energy intake, not only will you contribute to a healthier & happier world, but you will also be saving a lot of money.

Recycle

First reduce your consumption and reuse the items you already have, then make sure to recycle any packaging so it doesn’t go into the landfills or oceans!

 

Instead of disposing packaging & waste once, let’s contribute to a circular economy by making sure to recycle all materials! Did you know plastic can only be recycled a set amount of times before it has to be thrown away? Opt for buying & using other materials, but if using plastic is necessary, reuse it as much as you can before throwing it away! Recycling reduces and slows down the amount of waste that is being thrown into our landfills and oceans!
