Raising livestock for our meat-centered diets is destroying our planet and threatens our civilization and prosperity. Giving up or cutting back on meat consumption is the most important thing an individual can do to protect the environment and future generations from disaster. That is why the Vegetarian Week 2011will focus primarily on the environmental reasons to eat a vegetarian diet.
