Last night, I watched a documentary called Cowspiracy, a 2014 doco which explained the ramifications of food agriculture on the environment. It covered the detrimental effects that farming has on many negative world issues such as deforestation, climate change and how the government hide how badly agriculture affects the environment! It was really powerful and made me consider my own intake of beef.
When I was devising this campaign of eating out and social awareness, I wanted to make it relevant to everyone, whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, omnivorous, paleo, a gym junkie, or a food lover!
However, today I want to raise the point of the detrimental effects of agriculture on society, and it doesn’t matter what your stance is or knowledge, it is important to know where your food comes from, and know that you are making conscious choices when eating out!
What vegetarians and vegans care the most about eating meat is the environmental effects and lack of education and awareness to those who don’t know otherwise. Watching this documentary, (and as a meat eater myself), it is made SO clear what they mean when they say why it is soo bad for the environment.
As as a result, I encourage everyone to watch it, it was really interesting and engaging and it would be really awesome if we could spread awareness and education of how bad cattle farming is for the environment..
Imagine the world ate less beef, we would all significantly reduce our carbon/methane footprint and reduce the damage to the Earth #envirolyf
Consider ordering an alternative to beef next time you eat out.
Please comment if you have thoughts, opinions on this topic or have seen the documentary!
