    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?

    Richer countries eat more meat than other places because meat is a luxury, many countries rely on animals for resources. Eating more meat results in water waste.

    Now I never turn on the lights when it is light out. Now I will always open the window and let natural light in and only turn on lights when it is absolutely necessary.

    Every time that I leave a room now I make sure that all lights are off and that if I am not using a electronic device that it is unplugged because even if something is off and it is still plugged in it takes energy
