How often do you eat meat? Once a week? Every day? If it’s the latter, your diet is having a huge impact on the planet.
You’ve probably heard that the best way to fight climate change is to reduce your meat intake, but if you’re not ready to go full vegan, a new study has found that you can slash polluting emissions by swapping your steak for animal organs.
The meat industry accounts for 14.5% of total global greenhouse gas emissions, more than the transport sector’s direct carbon output.
Cattle products are particularly harmful, as cows produce huge amounts of noxious methane — a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide.
