Today we celebrate Earth Day 2019 with a focus this year on protecting the millions of species that inhabit our planet.
The unprecedented global destruction and rapid reduction of plant and wildlife populations are directly linked to causes driven by human activity: climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, trafficking and poaching, unsustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides to name a few. The impacts are far-reaching.
Food, especially meat production, takes a major toll on the environment. Each week, many of us make decisions about food 3 times a day, 7 days a week. That’s 21 opportunities to make a difference and help preserve species around us. One of the easiest ways to reduce our ecological footprint is to choose to eat less meat.
This Earth Day I have teamed up with other bloggers to create the selection of delicious sustainable food recipes below. Enjoy!
