Today is Earth Day.
Everyday should be recognized as Earth Day. We only have one.
We are rapidly destroying it and it is very disheartening.
There are many ways to help protect our beautiful planet. The single most effective way is to eat a plant-based diet. Animal products and the needs for their production are monumentally resource intensive and contribute to massive amounts of pollution. Eating a plant-based diet makes the most significant impact, far more than taking shorter showers(2400 gals of water to produce 1 lb of beef vs. 25 gals to produce 1 lb of wheat), driving electric vehicles and swapping out more efficient light bulbs. Granted these things do help, but we need to do more.

We don't really have a choice, do we?
Have a great week.
