  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our planet and other people?

    Michelle Hesek 12/02/2019 1:33 PM
    In richer countries, more people can afford to buy meat. Eating meat affects our planet with massive carbon emissions (especially from cows), deforestation for farmland, and a lot of dumping in waters and landfills.
