5. Less beef
Yes, you love steaks, but tame your cravings for beef so you can help the environment. Did you know that the common sources of red meat – bulls and cows – produce enormous quantities of climate changing gases like methane and carbon dioxide? Not only do cattle produce these gases but they also consume grasses resulting to overgrazing. Grasses absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen thus help balance out the adverse effects of greenhouse gases.
No, not implying you become a vegetarian but a slight reduction to beef consumption goes a long way, and with a dramatic effect.
