Thanks to the 320 households that pledged to cut out meat one day a week for 12 weeks, we reduced our collective carbon footprint by 22,894.08 kg CO2 eq!
That is equivalent to:
Driving 56,113 less miles,
Using no electricity in 3.4 homes for 1 year, OR
Recycling 8 tons of waste instead of sending it to a landfill
Great job to everyone who participated!
If we kept it up all year, then we would multiply the any of the above by 4.
This certainly shows that food really can be part of the climate solution, and we look forward to exploring more ways we can encourage climate smart food choices in our community!
