Have you heard about Meatless Mondays?

The idea is simple; refrain from eating meat on Mondays in order to gain health benefits and decrease your carbon footprint. 

According to the organization's website, the meat industry generates nearly one-fifth of the man-made greenhouse gas emissions that are accelerating climate change worldwide. 

Cutting back on meat also reduces your water usage. An estimated 1,800 to 2,500 gallons of water go into a single pound of beef! Think of that next time you're making tacos.

Also, moderating meat consumption is a great way to cut fossil fuel demand.

Oprah's doing it. Shouldn't you too?
