“By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh, The World We Have: A Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology
