Stop and think. Can you imagine life without occasionally biting into a delicious hamburger, a scrumptious shawarma, or some grilled steak? And does your pizza feel incomplete without meat toppings? Ah! The sinful pleasures of meat! Life doesn’t seem as delicious without it now, does it? But did you know a vegetarian way of life is more beneficial than being a meatatarian? (Oh no! Not again!) Sure you love your meat and no we are not lobbying to turn you into a vegetarian. But consider this… were you to spend only one day of the week consuming only vegetarian or vegan meals, it could help not only your health but your pocket and most importantly the environment. Yes, it’s true, that “Meatless Monday” lifestyle means a significant reduction in your carbon footprint! And at Govinda’s, giving back to the environment means a lot to us.
But just one day of the week??!! How does that help? Let the numbers show you how. An average meatatarian consumes about 176 pounds of meat in a year. So by giving up meat for one day of the week, that consumption reduces to 150 pounds per year. So imagine the entire city, the country and the whole world giving up those 26 pounds of meat per year. How much would that save? A lot! Now your love for all things meat might lead to the argument that “We’re using more land resources by uprooting plants for food!” But this is far from the truth. In fact, as per recent statistics, meatatarians consume 160% more land resources than plant-eaters. Surprising, isn’t it? But it’s true.
You see, the ever-rising human population means an ever-rising demand for meat. In order to raise livestock to fulfil this demand, forests are cleared to create pastures. Did you know 80 percent of the deforestation in the Amazon rainforest is attributed to beef production? Woah! That’s big! Also, the ridiculous amounts of water required to raise livestock becomes another concern altogether. But that’s not all, with meat comes meat processing and that brings into the picture factories, machines, electricity and so much more. Activities like these contribute to an increase in greenhouse gases like methane and carbon dioxide, which in turn causes greater harm to the environment. So there you have it! Now imagine how much it would help if everybody on planet earth decides to give up meat for a day. Just one day isn’t too much to ask from you, but the impact it makes on the environment is big.
