    How the Meat Industry Hooks Children

    How the Meat Industry Hooks Children

    How the Meat Industry Hooks Children by Jennifer Molidor at the Center for Biological Diversity at TakeExtinctionOffYourPlate.com

    The Center for Biological Diversity is a non-profit working to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.
    Why is the Center for Biological Diversity focusing on reducing meat consumption?
    When it comes to the causes of environmental destruction and overconsumption of resources, the meat industry is at the top of the list. Meat production uses massive amounts of water and land, and leaves behind devastating amounts of pollution and greenhouse gases. America’s livestock industry — particularly through grazing on public lands — is one of the greatest threats to endangered species and habitat.

Caron De Mars ,

My "Health Stack Morning Routine" starts with Plant Based Briefing!

Neuroscientist interested in goal-setting emphasize the importance of a healthy early morning routine. My routine starts with the Plant Based Briefing podcast while I drink two glasses of water; make coffee and tea; and get outside in the early morning sun to do some garden maintenance. I always learn something new. I thoroughly enjoyed the series on Earth care in the run up to Earth Day, and appreciate how Marian Erickson references other episodes that are tied to the current topic. Not only have I learned new information for my plant based journey, but appreciate the panoply of sources that Marian uses. I have learned more sources for plant-based living that emphasize the environment, health, and compassion if this lifestyle. If you want a daily dose of inspiration subscribe to Plant-Based Briefing!
