My BFF sent me a link to the Meat Eaters Guide to Climate Change and Health, from the Environmental Working Group. As she said, while we might not like this because it says eating meat is OK in the first place, it also finally addresses how bad cheese is for the environment! There you go, vegetarians: Cheese isn’t just about torturing cows, it’s also about killing the planet! A two-for-one!
The site is geared toward meat-eaters but it outright says to eat less meat and cheese, even suggesting Meatless Monday be Cheese-less Monday as well. Plus, it’s got hella posters and graphics!
They also have a quiz about the environmental impacts of meat—I do love a quiz! Embarrassingly, I only got a 50 percent. Hey, I know it’s bad for the environment, I don’t need to know the exact numbers! Actually, the staggering numbers seem to affect the omnis when you share them, so I should know them. Whatever, YOU take the quiz. Tell me what you get!
