Thought about sticking to Meatless Monday to reduce your carbon foot print?

The EPA states that for every 1 gallon of gasoline used, 20 lbs of C02 equivalent are produced. Therefore, a year’s worth of beef consumption is only equivalent to 36.15 gallons of gas! (723 lb CO2 from beef / 20 lb CO2 from gas = 36.15 gallons of gas) If the average vehicles get 20 miles per gallon, you only have to drive 723 miles to produce the same amount of CO2 as a year’s worth of eating beef!
