We real­ize that a lot of this info can seem real­ly daunt­ing, but here are some the top action items you can take to make a dif­fer­ence:

  • Stop Cut­ting Up Meat: Cut it Out
    • You don’t nec­es­sar­i­ly need to be a veg­an to reduce your car­bon foot­print. Here are some sug­ges­tions on dietary plans you can uti­lize to live more sus­tain­ably:
      • Only eat meat when you go out to a restau­rant or only eat meat when it seems worth it.
        • There’s noth­ing worse than tak­ing a bite of an over­cooked piece of steak or a dry chick­en sand­wich at a chain restau­rant. Avoid this unpleas­ant­ness and decrease your car­bon foot­print by only eat­ing meat on spe­cial occa­sions and at high-qual­i­ty estab­lish­ments.  
      • Pescatar­i­an diet.
        • Choose seafood that’s farmed and har­vest­ed in a sus­tain­able way by down­load­ing the Mon­terey Bay Aquar­i­um Seafood Watch App which can guide you on how to find restau­rants and stores near you that serve ocean-friend­ly seafood. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/seafood-watch/id301269738?mt=8

  • Con­scious­ly Pur­chase Your Pro­duce
