On this episode of the Positively Green Podcast, we discuss why you don’t have to go vegan to live a sustainable lifestyle. This episode has come at the request of many of our listeners, as well as being born out of the necessity to start a more open dialogue about eating meat and raising livestock in the face of climate change.
This podcast was born out of a bad review for the show, believe it or not. The review said:
"I was pretty pumped for a green podcast to drop. Listening to the first few minutes of them talking about raising animals to eat their eggs was confusing. There are many reports with supporting researching showing that the least green thing we can do is support and promote any type of animal agriculture, organic or not."
Before you tune in, we have a bit of a disclaimer. Eating is very personal. People feel like they are being personally attacked sometimes when they are told something about the way they choose to eat. We can feel threatened when the reasons we choose to eat a certain way are challenged - this happens to us even too. If this episode triggers you and you feel the need to put us down or call us names to feel better about yourself, please don’t waste your energy. If on the other hand you are looking to have a good conversation and reach out to us about something, please do use your energy for that!
