Wonderful article. I garden, we rarely eat meat, I use natural cleaners, I recycle, and I am so against waste! Wasting food, paper, drinks...it all drives me crazy! Ask my kids! I do use the car, but none of the places I go are close enough to walk to, or the walk would not be safe because of walking along a busy road. I don't do drive-thrus, because I do not eat fast food, and my bank is where I shop, withe the ATM inside. What I would like to do next is compost.
i gave up meat (chicken,turkey and seafood have not eaten red meat in years)for an entire month..saved some money and lost some weight. But once the cookouts started I began eating meat again. Now I just don't eat it as often. I am considering eliminating it from my diet again. we'll see
Being green does not mean being vegetarian. "Giving up" meat is one option but what the article is referring to is simply eating less. For health, as well as the planet, we should begin having meat take up less of our plate - consider it more of a side than the main thing. In this country we have come to think that meat should cover our whole plate and that is bad for our waists, our arteries, and our planet. Filling our plates with whole grains and veggies and a bit of meat provides the balance that our bodies (and our earth) needs.

I think it might be easier than we thought to eat meat every other day.
I read that people would ride a bike if they didn't have to pedal UP HILL. I saw on the news that PANASONIC has developed a bike that has a battery that is charged from "braking" like a Hybrid Car. It can be used to "pull you up the hill" when you are reding it.
Yes all is good, thanks for the article it show us that small changes can make a big deal of difference. I also would like to provide an amazing web-site that supports the parts about food in this article. feel free to response with any comments or if you were aware of this wonderful web-site already in that case congrats to you...www.slowfoodusa.org Patricia
