I became a vegetarian, close to vegan for environmental reasons. Cowspiracy (click to access previous post) does a great job of clarifying the benefits to the environment and to us by choosing plant based foods over food produced from animal agriculture. This short video also quickly describes the benefits of going vegan. However, remember any whole food plant based food choices you make benefit you and the environment and means you are practicing paneugenesis by creating interactions with our food system that benefits everyone and everything. Enjoy!
