My husband and I recently volunteered for Furbearer Defenders, and though that organization focuses on wildlife with fur, like coyotes, beavers, foxes, and wolves, spending more time thinking about animals beyond our dogs got us thinking about the animals we are eating. We’ve never been vegetarians, though we don’t eat a lot of meat. For just one month (to start, anyway) we’ve decided to go meatless. We’re calling it “Meatless May.” If you’ve ever thought about going vegetarian (or if you are already), this article addresses the benefits and cautions about going meatless. But perhaps you might just try meat-less (i.e. less meat) for a month and see how you feel. For more, check out my 24 Hours Vancouver article: Consider going meatless in May.
