Here’s a few neat little facts to keep you being as green as you possibly can be:
Don’t Patronize Fast-Food Chains.
“Eight hundred and fifty-two million people around the world live in poverty. Of these people, 815 million of them live in developing countries. In 1996, governments of the countries that belong to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) made a commitment to halving the number of malnourished people in the world by 2015. At the present rate of progress this target will be achieved in 2150, or more than 100 years late, because of fast-food restraunts. Meanwhile, no part of the world is spared the wave of fast-food chain restaurant openings, a vertable standard-bearer of globalization. If you visit fast-food restaurants, think about what you are doing, and make your children aware of the other results of mass-produed food: intensive, polluting agriculture, poor nutritional quality, mountains of non-recyclable packaging, and standardization of tastes” (Bourseiller).
