eating for environmental wellness

List Owner: Sheryl Leighton

List Description

Most people don't seem to know how much their food choices impact climate change. Yet the science is clear. Perhaps the most important thing we can do to reverse global warming and protect our precious environmental resources is to look at what we put on our plates and in our mouths--with a curious mind, an open heart, and willingness to change for the good of all. If you'd like to learn more about the connection between your food choices and climate change, these resources may help!
