Quote by Dr. Jane Goodall

“By becoming vegetarian or vegan, or even just eating less meat, you can make a big difference. It will help animals and it will help the planet. As more and more people eat more and more meat, forests are cleared to provide land to grow grain to feed the billions of animals confined in horrendous factory farms.These animals produce large amounts of methane gas during the process of digestion – an even more potent greenhouse gas than CO2. And the waste from the operations is washed into rivers and lakes, poisoning the water and creating algae blooms. And finally, remember that cows, pigs, chickens and other farmed animals are not just machines – like us they feel pain and know emotions such as contentment and depression. So many people tell me they love animals – but make food choices that do not reflect that love. I fully support the Meatless Monday campaign, helping people in the Cleveland community realize the power of their choices when they band together to help make our world a better place.”
