Interns at A Climate To Thrive have developed a guide to vegan and vegetarian eating on MDI! This summer intern project was driven by the destructive impacts animal agriculture has on the environment. By eating less animal products and more plant-based foods, we can help combat the climate crisis! To read more about animal agriculture’s relationship with climate change, go here.
