Sustainability & the 30-day Vegan Challenge

Humane Talk (05-09-2016) #8057: Keegan Kuhn co-wrote & directed the documentary (available on Netflix) “Cowspiracy” and co-wrote with Kip Andersen the book THE SUSTAINABILITY SECRET: RETHINKING OUR DIET TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD. Keegan explains how diet choices and “planetary transformation” start with each individual’s understanding of the impact of what they choose to eat and options (for example, the misconception about grass-fed beef, which actually has a significantly larger carbon footprint than grain fed). “We have to be the change we want to see,” he counsels. At www.Cowspiracy.com you can see the movie of that name, buy the book, and sign up for the 30-day vegan challenge.
