Tomorrow, October the 1st, is the start of World Vegetarian Day / Vegetarian Awareness Month. It is also the launch of World Meatless Lunch, a global initiative created here in the Philippines to alleviate climate change by encouraging people to eat a vegetarian meal for lunch tomorrow.
If you doubt that your food choices can impact the world, here is some information that may just change your mind. Not only is this vegetarian lunch a step towards minimizing your carbon footprint, it’s a great way to explore a more healthful and more compassionate diet.
