When we think about preserving the environment, we often focus on efficient cars, light bulbs and recycling items like bottles, cans, plastic bags and newspapers. But the food choices we make also have a HUGE impact on the environment. Here are some important facts you should consider:
Interestingly, Mother Nature is also a big recycling center. Bugs and warms decompose plant foods and waste (not necessarily meats or processed foods), which infuses soil with nutrients and makes it more productive. However, if we continue to create large amounts of garbage that cannot be recycled by nature, it can result in everyone and everything around us becoming sick, including humans, plants, animals, soil, mountains, rivers, lakes and our beloved oceans, too!
It’s important to remember we’re all links in the chain called life, and together we can help produce a sustainable and healthy environment for all to share. Remember, what is healthy for us is also good for the planet.
