Climate change is starting to have visible effects around the world. Reducing the impact of climate change requires education, action and awareness. In Canada, this means reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and ensuring that everyone is well-equipped to face the effects of climate change. Why not measure your carbon footprint? Write letters to your local government to encourage them to take action against climate change or challenge yourself to go vegetarian for a week.
There are many reasons eating less meat is beneficial, such as for nutrition, ethical or even financial, but what might be surprising is that the overproduction of meat across the world can have very negative effects on our climate. For many, it may be very hard to imagine a meal without any meat! That being said, there are so many great vegetarian meals and recipes to try. Teach your family and friends about the benefits of eating less meat, challenge yourself to eat just one vegetarian meal a week, or plan a vegetarian camp for your next Section adventure!
