According to the United Nations report - Livestock's Long Shadow , meat consumption and dairy consumption causes 18% of man-made greenhouse gases. Meat industries and dairy industries across the world, is causing environment problems.
United Nations is urging people to eat less meat. Some research has shown that vegans have the small
carbon footprint. Thriving on a vegan diet is a great way to go "Green". I'm sure United Nations is pleased with "Meatless Mondays".
It's really so easy to be a vegan in United States. You can get everything from vegan icecreams to non-dairy milk and vegan chocolates to vegan butter.
Thanks to the internet, you can find great vegan recipes, vegan forums and vegan blogs. I often browse vegweb, vegan jains, vegetarian times , urban vegan , vegan richa and fat free vegan for recipes and news about plant-based diet - good for health and our beautiful planet Earth.
