Pledge to Eat Conscientiously, for Animals and the Planet

LINK: Petition

Target: YOU!

One of the best things you can do for the environment and for the planet is to become vegetarian, eat less meat or pay more attention to where your meat comes from.

Due to the way meat is processed and transported, the meat industry accounts for more pollution than the entire transportation industry! If you think cars and planes are bad, take a deeper look into the meat industry.

Animal agriculture not only produces carbon dioxide, but also methane and nitrous oxide emissions. Those three are the toxic cocktail that causes global warming.

Eating 1 pound of meat emits the same amount of greenhouse pollution as driving a hummer 40 miles!

As if that wasn't a good enough reason, there are many issues about the treatment of farm animals in factory farms, who are crammed into tiny cages and subjected to horrifying lives.
