IcebergsWhat we choose to eat is one of the biggest factors in our personal impact on the environment. A meat-based diet requires more energy, land and water resources than a vegetarian diet. Worldwide, farmed animals produce more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transport system.

Going vegetarian is an easy way to lower your own environmental impact and help ensure worldwide food security.
