How we get there
One of the best things about this section is that it is a purely personal decision. How we get there doesn't involve any fancy new technologies, waiting on major corporations, or government programs. It involves each of us making a decision to make a positive impact on the world. It's easy to read about issues on this site and then change your CFLs and call it a day. While we support people getting up and changing their lightbulbs, this is one of those issues where you can make a large impact with one simple change.
We have come a long way since beef flavored tofu in terms of meat alternatives

We have come a long way since beef flavored tofu in terms of meat alternatives. Eating less and better meat is definitely something that is possible to do without feeling like you are compromising your quality of life, even if you are used to eating beef a few times a week and meat with every meal.
It's all about making a commitment and starting small, eat grass-fed beef instead of grain-fed, eat chicken instead of pork, and give up meat for an extra meal a week.
