Combat Climate Anxiety
Climate change is one of the most complex and challenging issues facing our world today. If addressing this problem sometimes feels daunting and stressful, you are not alone. Read the following article for tips to combat your climate anxiety.
Eat Plant-Based Meals
Livestock-based food production causes approximately one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions. To reduce your carbon footprint, consider swapping a meat-based meal for a plant-based meal at least once a week. This not only helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and preserve natural resources, but can also have numerous health benefits.
