If we reduced global meat consumption by 50% and used more calories from plants, we would move Overshoot Day 5 days!

It takes 14 times as much biologically productive land to produce 1 ton (or 907 kilograms) of beef as it takes to produce 1 ton of grain. Pork? 1.9 times as much. Furthermore, global livestock is responsible for 9% of all anthropogenic carbon emissions (a conservative estimate.)

What are you hungry for? How often can you enjoy a vegetarian meal?

Expanding your vegetarian repertoire in the kitchen will help, so we invite you to explore these videos of delicious and easy recipes. Pick one that inspires you, go grocery shopping, and start chopping!

We are counting all the steps taken to #MoveTheDate. More steps mean more impact.
