“According to the United Nations, the meat industry is in large part responsible for some of the most serious environmental problems that we face today, including climate change,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Each of us can help stop damage to our forests, our water supply, and the global climate—all we have to do is keep meat, eggs, and dairy products off our plates.”
