Take Extinction Off Your Plate

The planet and its wildlife need us to reduce our meat consumption.

From TakeExtinctionOffYourpPlate.com:
Meat production is one of the main drivers of environmental degradation globally, and the crisis is rapidly growing worse. Production of beef, poultry, pork and other meats tripled between 1980 and 2010 and will likely double again by 2050. This ever-increasing meat consumption in a world of more than 7 billion people is already taking a staggering toll on wildlife, habitat, water resources, air quality and the climate. The only way to stop this environmental crisis is to address both unsustainable population growth and our voracious appetite for meat — and Americans eat more meat per capita than almost anyone else. By eating less or no meat, we can take extinction off our plates and improve our own health along with the health of the planet.

That’s why the Center for Biological Diversity launched our Earth-friendly Diet campaign.
