Kick off Sustainability Week by enjoying a meat-free day. Approximately 60% of greenhouse gases produced from food are generated from animal products. Food choices have a big impact on our carbon footprint and for the majority of people, their food choices are the single biggest contributor to their personal carbon footprint.
