This is a serious problem, and while we only eat buffalo and bison, if there was the same amount of buffalo and bison as there were cows, the problem would be the exact same. As a result, Layla and I are going to start eating less and less meat and going more and more vegan with what we eat. This is the most direct way to help make a dent in the 18 percent greenhouse gas emissions that are put into the air from cows, especially from transport.
We already eat local so that we cut down on transport emissions, but growing our own food (as we are) and eating more vegetables from our area will help to lower the effect that meat has on our environment.
Meat for the two of us will only only be on occasion from now on. We will not be eating beef in any way, and we will limit other types of meat like chicken, turkey and pork products. This does not mean we will stop eating those types of meat altogether, but we will lower our intake of them.
