Green Sprog Tip #1: Eat less meat

Thought I'd roll out another feature on The Sprog this Friday: Green Sprog Tips. I want to share with you one simple green idea per week that you can do to reduce the footprint you leave behind. I've been meaning to do it for ages, but you know how it is. Then a really great infographic landed in my lap, so I had to share it with you.

Before you read it, I'll admit first that I'm not vegan or vegetarian (though I was for a couple of years--then the siren song of bacon & chicken strips got me). I doubt that this blog post will convince you to become vegan either, but I think it would be great if we could all cut back on the animal products. I won't launch into a long explanation about the heavy toll meat production has on the environment--that's what the lovely infographic is for!

My plan is to institute a day a week where we don't eat any meat here in the Sprog household. Not that we're necessarily huge carnivores, but we've been eating our fair share of pigs, cows, chickens & fish lately. Do you want to join us in having a meatless day (or two or maybe three?) a week?

If you're not sure how eating less meat could impact the environment, please read on:

Veganism by the numbers.
