This year marks 20 years of being vegetarian/pescetarian for me (it’s varied over time; at this point I try to only eat mollusks and shellfish if I do have seafood).
I cut out meat for ethical/animal welfare reasons but I’ve wondered what sort of impact still eating dairy has on the planet (and whether it makes me a hypocrite re: animal welfare), or whether I should cut out all seafood entirely because the oceans are hurting. Fortunately, the NY Times is here to answer all of those questions and more, with a big interactive piece you can click through:
There’s even a comparison of the impact of different types of plant “milks”! Thinking about food like this is definitely a luxury and a privilege, but if you’re able to, I recommend checking out the article.
