Vegetarian Awareness Day/Month

October 1st kicks off Vegetarian Awareness Month! So I challenge you to join me by eating meat-free for the day or throughout the month!

eat beans not beings!

Some of the benefits from not eating meat:
•Reduce the risk of major killers such as heart disease, stroke and cancer while cutting exposure to food-borne pathogens
•Provide a viable answer to feeding the world’s hungry through more efficient use of grains and other crops
•Save animals from suffering in factory-farm conditions and from the pain and terror of slaughter
•Conserve vital but limited freshwater, fertile topsoil and other precious resources
•Preserve irreplaceable ecosystems such as rainforests and other wildlife habitats
•Decrease greenhouse gases that are accelerating global warming
•Mitigate the ever-expanding environmental pollution of animal agriculture
