Climate & Sustainability
Extreme heat, extreme cold, extreme storms... no, it's not your imagination: Climate change is here... and it's going to get worse. However, we are not pure, innocent victims. We're the ones who created this situation. We can all take steps to slow and even reverse climate change. The most effective thing we can do 3 times a day is to eat a plant-based diet. A vegan diet has a much lower emissions price tag than a meat/dairy diet. We can also reduce our consumption, avoid plastics, use recycled and compostable products whenever possible and avoid disposable products. Yes, reducing air travel and driving more efficiently and/or less also helps. Once you get started, you'll find a sustainable lifestyle is actually a lot of fun. And, when you forgo things like paper towels and switch to reusable cloth towels, you'll save money too. So, let's get started!
