Reducing our meat consumption is one of the best things we can do to reduce our impact on the environment. Lamb and beef cause the most greenhouse carbon emissions of all the proteins we eat. A United Nations report has identified cattle as one of the biggest threats to our climate.Try a meatless meal or use smaller amount of meat in a recipe. Treat beef especially as a condiment instead of as a main dish. We as individuals can work to make small changes in our lifestyle to benefit our environment.SAVE GOD’S EARTH.
