helping the planet to help us

The world today involves excess consumption of almost everything except that which is good for us. In this day and age when you want something you get it within a short period of time and you end up wanting more. We can no longer live like this. The populations are growing and manufacturing is expanding to match the increased demand. An increase in consumption and manufacturing has reflected in the increase of Green House Emissions and the rapid advance of Global Warming. My pledge is to reduce the amount of meats I consume, especially red meats, and also packaged food which contribute to the waste in our ecosystems. The food industry is responsible for a quarter of the greenhouse gas emissions and of these, red meats produce the most such as beef, lamb and mutton and pork.
