This year marks the 50th celebration of Earth Day, which is observed on April 22nd. Earth Day began in 1970 when over 20 million people around the globe mobilized to bring more attention to how we, as a people, treat our planet. Today, it is observed in over 190 countries around the world. Earth Day 2020 will look a little different as many of us are at home. Though we won’t be marching to celebrate this year, being at home actually has a greater impact on preserving our planet. In fact, some of the easiest things we can do start right in the kitchen.
Over a quarter of the global gas emissions come from food. Nearly 60 percent of those emissions come from animal products, with half coming from red meat and the other half from other animal products. So, does this mean we all have to become vegetarians? No, but rethinking your protein is a great place to start. Moving towards a plant-friendly diet can help fight climate change and improve your health.
Making some simple swaps can go a long way. By swapping out just four ounces of beef for four ounces of beans, you’re saving nearly 350 gallons of water and reducing your footprint!
Here are some simple tips from The Culinary Institute of America and the Department of Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health to help get you started.
