The rapid pace of climate change has shocked even climate scientists. This summer, Europe has experienced unprecedented heat, drought, fires, and floods. China’s lakes and rivers are at all time lows, impacting agriculture. And in the U.S., drought areas are expanding, and major flood events continue to affect lower lying areas. Not surprisingly, these disasters mostly impact the poor among us.
But what can WE do? 🤔
According to the experts, two of the most impactful steps that individuals can take to minimize climate change are to: 1) eat less meat and 2) waste less food.
For those who would like to learn more about and even sample some delectable plant-rich foods, in September, our Climate Crisis Team’s Plant-Rich Diet Team will:
🍇 Provide snacks at coffee hour,
👨🍳🌱 Provide weekly food-related climate info and recipes in UUCC’s electronic communications,
🌾 Host a forum by Chiara D’Amore from the Community Ecology Institute (Freetown Farm), which will highlight the connection to environmental justice, and,
🍽️ Offer a monthly Vegetarian Dining Group
We hope you’ll take advantage of these opportunities to learn more about the advantages of a plant-rich diet. Let’s all do our part to minimize climate change NOW!
