My Earth Day pledge

Today is earth day. Today is the the day, at the UN, 175 countries joined together and signed a treaty. Not just any treaty, a treaty in which the world said in unison enough. Enough of the systematic slaughter of our country. Today was a historic day. And today, I will do my part. I have decided to become a vegetarian.

Recently, I watched Vegucated. This was eye opening to say the least. Not only is the beef industry awful to animals but beef production is a large contributor to green house gases. In fact, you are doing more for the environment by cutting out beef consumption for a year than you are but parking your car for the same amount of time. (non-believer, please watch Vegucated. It’s on Netflix).

This is all coming from a girl who salivates at a 8 ounce bacon wrapped fillet cut of perfectly grilled AAA sterling cut Alberta beef. Trust me this was not an easy decision. I still bleed my Alberta blue.

But after many days of hard thought I have decided to change my world, for my health, for the planets health and well for my budget.

So dear readers, wish me luck. These next few weeks will not be easy.
