November 13, 2009, Newsletter Issue #5: Hold The Meat

Tip of the Week

Strict vegetarianism may not suit everyone, but there are ecological reasons for reducing your meat consumption. In some regions of the world, such as Central America, forests and arable land have been converted into grazing land in order to produce beef, mostly for export. In short, millions of people lack grain while wealthier nations indulge in grain-fed beef. Moreover, untreated animal waste, predominantly from hog farming, leaches from fields into waterways as run-off. It is estimated that if the average American household sliced its consumption of red meat and poultry in half, water pollution would be reduced by 24%.
