Making a Positive Impact
While recycling a bottle, reducing your energy consumption, or riding a bike to work is a good way to help the Earth, there’s something that you can do to make a much greater difference.
In addition to being an incredibly healthy lifestyle, and saving the lives of numerous animals, adopting a Vegetarian or Vegan (Vegetarian who consumes nothing animal-derived) lifestyle makes a large global impact. So, by going Vegan, you can help the Earth, the animals, and yourself.
In addition to greatly reducing the risk of heart attack, other serious health conditions, and even some forms of cancer, a Vegan diet is cholesterol-free and generally low in fat. Going Vegan leads to a healthier and more fit body, and has even been said by many to improve their energy levels and how they feel.
It has been estimated that by going Vegetarian or Vegan, a person can save the lives of an average of 95 animals per year! And, it is not a difficult thing to do. There is a wide array of Vegan food out there (including some faux ‘meat’ products that have been said to taste quite authentic), and contrary to what some may think, it’s not a diet of green wheatgrass smoothies. There’s everything from Vegan sweets, to health bars, to Vegan cheese. There’s something out there for everyone–And no one has to get hurt.
So, this Earth Day, (and every day), think about the impact that you make, and how you can make a positive difference for this planet and its inhabitants. There is a plethora of helpful information online for making the transition to Veganism (including a great deal of amazing recipes). Becoming a Vegetarian, or a Vegan, is an easy thing that you can do, that can make a world of difference. Celebrate Earth Day by celebrating life…Go Vegan, and help save the world!
