LESS CARBON, MORE COMPASSION
With Carol Misseldine, Director of Green Cities California
If there were one thing that you could do to reduce your carbon footprint, improve your health, and reduce suffering, at little or no cost, would you like to try it? You can! Come hear Carol Misseldine describe the benefits of the plant-based diet, for planet, for heart, and our fellow creatures.
Date: Monday, May 14, 2012
Time: 7:30-9:00 pm
Place: San Rafael City Hall, Council Chambers, 1400 Fifth Avenue
In the U.S., 95% of the meat, eggs and dairy we eat comes from animals confined on factory farms, centers of pollution and suffering that represent the worst of the industrial economic model. Carol will highlight not only the extraordinary leverage we each have to reduce our carbon footprint dramatically but also the spiritual implications of eating lower on the food chain.
